Teri Lynn Mathews was last seen alive on Dec. 5,1986. She was believed to have been abducted in the vicinity of the Land O' Lakes Post Office, where she had a post office box. Her car was found in the parking lot of the post office, with the engine running and the driver's door open. Her body was found raped, stabbed and bludgeoned to death.

The investigation into Mathew’s murder uncovered no significant leads until the summer of 1990, when Danny Coby contacted Crime Stoppers in Fort Wayne, Indiana with information about the murder. Danny Coby was married to Cheryl Coby, the former wife of Bolin. Following the call made by her current husband, Cheryl Coby gave investigators a statement regarding the murder of Mathews, after which Bolin was indicted for her murder.
