Police chief who solved 47-year-old murder was willing to risk big to find killer

Police chief who solved 47-year-old murder was willing to risk big to find killer Terre Haute police Chief Shawn Keen knew he would be taking a risk by using up the last human sample he had from a 47-year-old crime scene, but he had a feeling the gamble would pay off. This week, it did. Using DNA testing, Keen solved the 1972 murder of Indiana college student Pamela Milam — a crime that happened two years before the police chief was born. Following a trail of DNA breadcrumbs that started with a genealogy profile, Keen managed to put to rest a case he'd been struggling with for more than a decade. “I had to find answers for the family,” he said.

A Pasadena woman who was almost home after going to the gym was abducted and sexually assaulted early Tuesday morning, police said.

DNA Evidence Leads to Arrest in Brutal Sexual Assault of 14-Year-Old Girl at Santa Ana Park: Police

DNA Evidence Leads to Arrest in Brutal Sexual Assault of 14-Year-Old Girl at Santa Ana Park: Police May 08--Police have arrested a man in connection with the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl at a Santa Ana park last year after DNA evidence recently tied him to the brutal attack, police said Wednesday. The suspect, 37-year-old Cornelio Chairez-Velasquez, was already in custody after allegedly tried to sexual assault and strangle a woman at a motel this past January, according to a Santa Ana Police Department news release. Using DNA evidence, police were able to link Chairez-Velasquez to a vicious assault on a teenage girl at Cabrillo Park back on November 24, 2018, police said. The girl had gone to the park, located at 1820 E. Fruit St.

The woman had just left Fitness Connection in the 3900 block of Spencer Highway when a man began following her in a green Ford Mustang, according to the Pasadena Police Department. The Mustang had a dark-colored primer on the front bumper, police said.

As she pulled up to her home, the man ran up to her, forced her in the back of the Mustang at gunpoint and drove off with her, police said. He then drove to an area in the 2000 block of Lamar, where he sexually assaulted her before fleeing, police said.

Detectives described the man as being between 18 and 22 years old and between 5 feet, 2 inches and 5 feet, 4 inches tall. He is skinny, was clean shaven and wore gray slick sweatpants and a black cotton hoodie, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to call Pasadena PD Detective J. Stephens at 713-475-7896.
