(CNN) Nearly 58 years ago, Marise Chiverella was murdered and her body left in a hole in Hazleton, Pennsylvania.

State police worked tirelessly over the years but were unable to identify her killer until now.

"Pennsylvania state police was founded in 1905, so over half of our existence we've investigated this case," said Pennsylvania State Police Lieutenant Devon Brutosky during Thursday's news conference.

She was last seen alive around 8:10 a.m., according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Her siblings on Thursday described her as a quiet, sweet girl that had aspirations of becoming a nun.

Police were hoping this was the break in the case they needed, but the DNA didn't return any matches.

This is fourth oldest cold case to be solved in in the country using genetic genealogy and the oldest in the state of Pennsylvania, according to state police Cpl. »
