"The Keepers" series on Netflix has Anne Arundel County residents asking questions about the 1969 murder of 20-year-old Joyce Malecki.

In response to requests from the public, The Anne Arundel County police released the following statement saying the FBI is investigating her case.

"There is information circulating among on-line blogs and websites that state the Joyce Malecki murder investigation was at some point in time handed over to the Anne Arundel County Police Department by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  This is not an accurate statement.  Because Ms. Malecki’s body was found on Federal property, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is the lead investigating agency for this case."

"The Keepers" suggests that Joyce Malecki’s murder may be linked to the murder of Sister Catherine Cesnik at the Old Archbishop Keough.

Malecki's body was found near a Fort Meade shooting range and left in a similar manner as Sister Cesnik's.

Anne Arundel County Police said they've been fielding calls from viewers who want to know what is going on with the investigation.

The question of who is covering the investigation is a topic that is discussed on the show.
