Lake Tahoe Cold Case: 4 Decades-Old Mystery


This year DNA has played an important role in an arrest in the case of the Long Island Gilgo Beach murders which took place from 1996 to 2011. 

An architect was charged after detectives matched his DNA from a discarded pizza box to a male hair found on one of the murder victims’ remains.

The Lake Tahoe cold case is now an active investigation.

“As technology develops, investigators routinely revisit cases which were previously believed to have no leads,” South Lake Tahoe Police announced.
