OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A northeast Kansas sheriff’s office has renewed its request for tips in the killings of two women 24 years ago.

The body of Christina Brandolese was found in a rural part of southern Johnson County on May 30, 1989. The other victim, Candice Fisher, was found dead in the same area three days later.

In a statement Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said Johnson County deputies worked more than 190 leads over the years. They’re hoping again for help from the public in Kansas and nearby Kansas City, Mo., where both women had last been seen in the midtown area.

Authorities believe the killings were connected. Both women died of blunt force trauma, and their bodies were in similar conditions when they were found within two miles of each other.
