A billboard has been erected to bring attention to a 2000 cold case in Bonita Springs.

According to Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, Denise Long’s body was found in January 2000 in the Moon Lake area of Bonita Springs. Deputies spotted her remains off a dirt road a few miles west of I-75, off Bonita Beach Road. Investigators believe the body had been there for a few weeks before the discovery.

Over the years, detectives have investigated multiple leads, but Long’s case is still unsolved. Despite the time that has passed, they are hopeful someone who has been holding on to information will finally come forward.

Anyone with information on Denise Long’s homicide can call Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-8477 or submit a tip online or on the P3 Tips app. All callers will remain anonymous, and there’s a $3,000 reward for any tip that leads to an arrest.
