    Hill was reported missing by her mother, on July 18, 1980. She had been living at 2808 W. Third Street. Hill was entered into the National Crime Information Center as a missing person. No record of her has been found. Her apartment was located next to Bud's IGA, now known as the West-Side Market. Julie's apartment was left unlocked, food was still cooking, her dog was left by itself, her purse was still there, and no notes were left to indicate what had happened. No trace of Julie has ever been found.

    Julie's apartment building was razed in 1987. In May of 2004, search warrants were served at 1106 Hammond Avenue in Superior and at 215 West Ninth Street in Duluth. The Duluth address belongs to Donald Louis Bloomer who was Julies boyfriend for several years and the last person to see Julie. Donald has lived at the same address since 1976. During a police interview, Bloomer confessed to shooting Hill at 215 West 9th Street in July, 1980.
