Cops to use modern forensics – finally.
New technology incorporated in the national forensic database has given renewed hope to Pacific Grove police that they will finally close the murder case.
“We have not forgotten about this,” Police Chief Darius Engles said. “It’s an active and open case.”
He (said investigators collected sufficient evidence, so new forensic techniques for identifying palm prints and DNA will catch up with the killer.
That evidence, he said, was submitted in July to the national DNA database. The process takes months, Engles said, but police expect results.
