A New Jersey cold case is finally solved, 24 years after a young woman's severed head was found on the seventh hole of the Hopewell Valley Golf Club.

Police say the remains belong to 25-year-old Heidi Balch, from New York City.

Authorities say she had been working as a prostitute in 1989.

She is believed to have been one of 17 victims of Long Island serial killer Joel Rifkin.
