Unsolved Case #44
Reference Number 02-04

Cheryl Lynn Blake (Smith)
Murdered May 20, 1994
McDonald's - Jim Miller & Int. 30
Dallas, Texas

Cheryl had went to McDonald's at approx 11:30 pm to get her boyfriend something to eat. She was in the drive-thru with cars in front of her and cars behind her when she was shot and killed. The detectives investigating her case call it a random car-jacking. Our family does not believe this is true because she had told at least 2 family members about 2 weeks before her murder that her boyfriend was going to kill her. Her boyfriends sister was in the truck with her and she got a flesh wound to the arm and has told conflicting stories about what happened. Cheryl was shot in the right temple one time and died within 2 to 3 minutes. Her boyfriend was white but was in a hispanic car club called Lifestyles. It was hispanics who killed her. Any information at all in this case would be greatly appreciated.
