A task force of investigators from the Michigan State Police, in conjunction with Osceola County Prosecutor Tyler Thompson, is focusing on the 2004 homicide of Tustin resident Esther Gaffney.

Eighty-year-old Esther Gaffney lived alone at her residence on Tustin Rd., north of the Village of Tustin (which is about 20 minutes north of Reed City). On July 12, 2004, Esther was found deceased inside her home. An autopsy concluded that the manner of Esther’s death was homicide.

Task force members are confident that advances in forensic science and information technology will generate new leads and aid investigators in bringing this case to a successful conclusion.

Cold cases are often solved because the passage of time allows witnesses and persons with information to come forward. Investigators feel that there are persons with information that will be pertinent to this case. Detectives are asking anyone with information regarding the homicide of Esther Gaffney to contact the cold case tip line of the Michigan State Police Mt. Pleasant Post at (989) 775-9302.
