Suffolk County Police have identified the woman who was found in the woods at the Froehlich Nature Preserve Thursday morning as Sarah Strobel, 23, of Huntington Station. Her body was found in the nature preserve in Huntington Thursday morning. 

Det. Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick said a passerby in the preserve found the body of the white woman about 8:50 a.m. about 300 feet into the woods. He deemed her death suspicious. She was found near one of the trails that winds through the preserve.

He declined to give further details until the county medical examiner's office had examined the body.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on this case to call the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

So now it is March of 2014 and this case just seems to have been swept away. Was this poor girl so unimportant that there was no justice in her case? No answers? No suspects? Sad to think she has been forgotten by all but those closest to her.

Pam Robinson, nearly 9 months have passed since Sarah Strobel's death. That's 9 months with no update from Suffolk County Police regarding the Homicide Investigation into Sarah's death. We, as a Community, have been more than patient. Now we want answers. What happened to Sarah? What was the cause of her death (COD has surely been determined by Med.Exam.) and Who is responsible? ~ Sarah Strobel will not been forgotten!~
