A cold case murder was just solved this month. A man who had long been considered a person of interest in the killing of a 21-year-old South Florida woman has been arrested after 38 years using…no…not DNA, but new fingerprint technology.
In this case in Delray Beach, Police found the body of Pompano Beach resident 21 year-old Carla Lowe lying in the street near the Amtrak station on Nov. 13, 1983.
Investigators said new fingerprint technology from the UK led them to 59 year-old Ralph Williams.
He was arrested last week in Jacksonville and charged with the death of Carla Lowe.
