Prosecutors delay Maurice Hill hearing to file more attempted murder, assault charges The Philadelphia man accused of shooting six cops last month was expected to be in court Thursday for his preliminary hearing, but prosecutors need more time. The city's district attorney's office plans to charge him with more counts of attempted murder and assault on law enforcement. Maurice Hill has already been charged with dozens of such counts, but the homicide supervisor for the D.A.'s office, Anthony Voci, says Hill will face more, as they continue to investigate. "We've completed about 175 interviews of police personnel. We still have about approximately 75 to go. There's video that still has to be reviewed.

Genetic genealogy identified Jake Edward Brown, who died in 2003, as the suspect in the disappearance and death of Terri Lynn Hollis, authorities said Wednesday. She vanished from her family's home in Torrance, near Los Angeles, on Nov. 23, 1972. Fishermen found Hollis, wearing only a T-shirt, on a cliff below the Pacific Coast Highway in Oxnard the next day.

“This crime is what nightmares are made of, and no family should ever have to go through such a tragedy,” Torrance Police Chief Eve Irvine said at a news conference.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — DNA and genetic genealogy led police to solve a cold case and identify a now-deceased man who kidnapped and killed an 11-year-old girl in Southern California nearly 47 years ago, authorities said. Terri Lynn Hollis disappeared from her Torrance home on Thanksgiving in 1972 .

After 2,000 interviews over nearly half a century, Irvine said an analysis of public databases by Virginia-based Parabon NanoLabs Inc. led them to a relative of the suspect. Police had preserved a DNA sample from Hollis' body, and it matched. Authorities then dug up Brown's body in Arizona to confirm the connection.

The same DNA investigation technique has helped investigators crack numerous cold cases, from California to Pennsylvania, with evidence from old socks to razors.

Brown had been arrested for two rape cases after Hollis' death, Irvine said, and police are investigating if he may be responsible for other unsolved crimes. He also had multiple addresses and went by an alias.

Randy Hollis, who was 16 when his younger sister was killed, teared up as he thanked police and urged families searching for answers not to lose hope. He said he still mourns his sister every Thanksgiving.
