$10,000 reward offered in 1993 killing of Julie Barnyock

Authorities in Montgomery County have announced a $10,000 reward for information in the killing of an 18-year-old woman two decades ago.

District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said Friday she hopes the reward "and some conscience" will spur someone to help solve the December 1993 murder of Julie Barnyock.

Barnyock was last seen at the Lansdale Train Station at about 11:40 p.m. on Nov. 8, 1993, when she called her father for a ride home.


Witnesses later reported seeing her speaking with a man, but when her father arrived she was gone.

Her body was found in a freight yard almost a month later. An autopsy concluded she died of severe head trauma.

Ferman said she also hopes new technology not available 20 years ago will provide new information in the case.

Anyone with information about the case can call the Montgomery County detectives at 610-226-5553 or the Lansdale Police Department at 215-368-1801.
