Great police work. The utilization of DNA has solved many cases that otherwise would not be solved. Congratulations to those that followed this up and solved the case. Vince was a nice guy and killed shortly before he was about to retire and enjoy the fruits of his labors.

Wow it took 23 years to bring a guy down. Something must be wrong.

“Does that make sense?”

I am happy this criminal has been charged. I know the Mejia's though never met Vincent senior. They are a super family and very wonderful. Vincent left a great legacy.
