A newly formed Seminole County Cold Case Working Group has begun reviewing the 1984 murder of Pamela Cahanes, a 25-year-old Navy airman apprentice who was last seen at the Navy Training Center in Orlando, and later found deceased in the front yard of a Sanford home.
Cahanes graduated from the Navy Training Center on Aug. 3, 1984 and the following day was seen shopping in Orlando.

That evening, she was again seen with an unidentified male at the Mariner’s Club, a lounge and bar on the Navy Training Center campus. The Navy Training Center was located at what is now Baldwin Park. Shortly after 1 a.m. on Aug. 5, Cahanes is believed to have been to a Chinese restaurant.
Cahanes was found deceased at approximately 7 a.m. on Aug. 5 in the front yard of a vacant home located at 2918 Old SR 46 (now Riverview Avenue) in Sanford. She was partially clothed and badly beaten. The cause of death was strangulation.
