This is really some bs... I am going to watch this up close... DNA from 30 years ago, they didn't even know how to properly store DNA... Another example of using the black man as a scapegoat... BS...

I know you really meant another example of a black man who is sub-human. Read the link to the original story.

If that were the case they would have just arrested him 30 years old. This everything being blamed on the black man mentality is getting old.

Guy's name came up in an unrelated DNA match. Not exactly fancy detective work here. Better lucky than good though.

Ina Hurry...Are you SERIOUS? Have you read this guy's rap sheet? Doesn't matter how the DNA was stored...a match is a match...and yes, it was good science...however, good detective work OPENED the case and made it solid...EPD deserves a big pat on the back for this one!

Congrats to EPD! Why are there always so many negative comments when the police are shown in questionable light? However, when they do something worth credit ,rarely is it given? Good job to the police and best wishes to the victim's family...

I agree. Good job EPD! This is really strange that the younger sister lived next door to the murderer, or did I misread that?

Come on seriously are some of you that stupid. If you are talking about the man walking next to him in the photo as being Roger Clemens and representing him. That would be a detective. He is wearing a police badge on his pants.

Yeah, they just happened to coincidentally match the DNA from a man in Virginia to a murder that happened in Easton in 1978 - and he lived next door to the victim at the time. Yeah, I'm sure this is BS. Just a huge coincidence.

I do not know anyone involved in this case. Not the victim, the family, the cops, or the defendant. Regardless, my thoughts go out to the family of this young girl. To the police: Good for you for not giving up. I am sure that her now deceased parents are resting more peacefully because of your continued work for justice. Hopefully some peace will come to all involved.

i believe there are hard working cops there....but shlt runs doenshill. if the public feels you have poor leaders then it casts a cloud over everyone. well with that said, woever this detective was, he and the bosses should be proud
