A DNA profile has been created says Homicide Cold Case D/Sgt. Stacy Gallant.
“He’s not currently in our national DNA data bank,” said Gallant. “What we need is a name to go with this DNA. Come forward and identify this person to assist in solving this case of a pregnant woman. It has been 21 years and this killer has not been held responsible. If you know who is responsible, take that step and help bring this offender to justice. If you want to remain anonymous, that is OK. We have the DNA, so all we need from you is his name. Bring that name into this investigation and help solve this case.”
