Report: LMPD officer smells marijuana in vehicle, finds murder suspect

Report: LMPD officer smells marijuana in vehicle, finds murder suspect A man wanted for murder in another state was arrested in Louisville. According to an arrest report, it started with the smell of marijuana coming from a vehicle. Police said Kelton Moore, 34, was the passenger in a vehicle that was omitting a strong odor Tuesday in west Louisville. Officers searched the vehicle and found a handgun. The Louisville man admitted to police he had it for four weeks and had purchased it on the streets of Louisville, the report said. It turns out Moore was wanted for a murder in Arkansas, and had two warrants out for him in Kentucky, police said. Moore was then arrested in the area of 28th and Chestnut streets.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A 38-year-old cold case in Jefferson County has been solved using genealogy DNA testing. Investigators say they’ve identified the killer of 18-year-old Jeannie Moore as Donald Perea, who was born in 1957 and died in 2012.

Moore disappeared on Aug. 25, 1981 while hitchhiking to work in Jefferson County.

Investigator say genealogy DNA and reverse paternity testing led them to Perea. They used programs called GEDmatch, an open-source website, and Family Tree DNA to find people who shared common DNA to the suspect. GEDmatch was used by law enforcement to identify a suspect in the Golden State Killer case in California.

“Anybody that has their ancestry results or their 23 and Me results that want to help law enforcement solve cases, go to GEDmatch, upload your data and say ‘Yes’ to the question ‘Do you want law enforcement to have your data?'” Morrissey urged.

“It was Family Tree DNA that gave us the most significant lead in this case. For a few hundred dollars, law enforcement can upload their sample into Family Tree… and then you search for people with common DNA to the DNA that you’re looking for.”

Jeezy and "The Real" co-host were rumored to be dating last week, but they were linked earlier this year.

“Then there’s a whole system where genealogist can look at it and say ‘OK, based on how much you share, this is likely a first cousin,’ or ‘This is likely an uncle’ or ‘This is likely, you know, some other relative.'” Morrissey explained. “What this allows you to do is go out to about fourth cousins. On average, a person has about 850 cousins out there in the world.”

Morrissey said they used DNA from Perea’s biological daughter to match him to samples taken from the crime scene.

“There’s nobody else out there in the world that would have a statistic like we have in this case,” Morrissey said.

“The only thing that is not a good thing about today is that we can’t hold this individual accountable because God took him before we got the chance,” he said.

Morrissey said Perea was accused of a kidnapping and rape in Wesminster and was out on bond when he raped and murdered Moore. He was 23 years old at the time.

“He had been arrested for sexual assault where he had a weapon and he had been charged but he had posted bond and was out when he picked up this victim and did what he did to her.”

Perea was eventually convicted for the rape and was in prison from 1982 to 1985. Investigators say he died from health problems in 2012.

Investigators thanked Perea’s family for cooperating and helping them solve the case.
