SALT LAKE CITY — Authorities are requesting archived news footage from Salt Lake City television stations in search of potential clues relating to the unsolved killing of a 6-year-old girl who was abducted from her home more than 20 years ago.

Salt Lake City police Det. Richard Chipping said Wednesday the request does not come as a result of any new leads in the case. He says police remain “interested in any and all angles” that will help catch Rosie Tapia’s killer.

Tapia’s mother discovered her daughter missing from her bedroom on Aug. 13, 1995.

The child’s body was found hours later in a canal near her home.

An autopsy showed she had been sexually assaulted and then drowned.

A $30,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to Rosie’s killer.
