DNA identifies suspect in 11-year-old's sexual assault, strangulation from 1972

Terri Lynn Hollis was sexually assaulted and strangled on Thanksgiving Day 1972.


Decades after an 11-year-old California girl was murdered, a suspect has been identified through the emerging investigative tool of genetic genealogy.

Terri Lynn Hollis was sexually assaulted and strangled on Thanksgiving Day 1972.

In 2000, the sexual assault evidence was submitted to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's crime lab and the DNA was entered into the law enforcement database CODIS to try to match it to known suspected criminals -- but no hits were found, Irvine said. The evidence was used in familial DNA searches twice, but still no matches were found, she said.

Since the arrest of the suspected"Golden State Killer" in April 2018, at least 70 suspects have been identified through the technology, according to CeCe Moore, the chief genealogist at Parabon NanoLabs, which investigated the Terri Lynn Hollis murder among others. Moore has appeared as an expert in ABC News"20/20" episodes and ABCNews.com articles.

Brown's body was exhumed and bone remains were collected to obtain DNA, Irvine said, but after two attempts, officials were unsuccessful in obtaining usable DNA from the remains.

"I only wish that my parents were still alive to see this," Hollis said, holding back tears.

Hollis expressed his appreciation for the detectives -- some of whom he said were not born at the time of the crime -- but still took his sister's case personally.

Parents Finally Tell 2-Year-Old About 9/11MIAMI—Having long shielded him from discussion and depictions of the traumatic event, local couple Brad and Jeannine Musgrave told reporters Friday that the moment had come to tell their 2-year-old son Connor about the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. “Connor’s almost 26 months old now, so we decided it was about time to finally sit him down and explain exactly what happened on 9/11,” said Brad Musgrave, after giving his toddler a detailed, half-hour description of the four hijackings, the collapse of the Twin Towers, and the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans. “We just couldn’t tiptoe around the subject any longer. At some point he was going to learn that there are evil men in this world who will stop at nothing to kill innocent people, including me, his mother, and him, if they have the chance. And we felt it was best he hear it from us now before it comes up at preschool.” Since child-development experts say Connor’s long-term memory pathways are still forming, the Musgraves plan to repeat their explanation at least once a week for the next four years. They'll tell him he was adopted when he's a little older. He’s old enough to know the truth eh.
