BATON ROUGE- Police in Baton Rouge are taking a new look at the 1985 slaying of an LSU doctoral candidate, hoping advances in DNA testing will shed new light on the case.
    
Twenty-seven-year-old Melissa Montz had been missing for 51 days when her remains were found in November 1985 in a ditch near the 18th fairway of LSU's golf course. Police said at the time she had been tied to a log and raped. No arrests were ever made.
    
Investigators now hope testing of items found at the scene might turn up new clues that could help solve the case.
