Title: 23 Years Later, A Cold Case is Closed

In 1986, a young nurse named Sherri Rasmussen was murdered in Los Angeles. Police pinned down no suspects, and the case gradually went cold. It took 23 years—and revolutionary breakthroughs in forensic science­—before LAPD detectives could finally assemble the pieces of the puzzle. When they did, they found themselves facing one of the unlikeliest murder suspects in the city’s history.
This came to my view from the Global Affairs forum, one of the other places I hang out a lot. Great procedural read, and recordings of the interview with the suspect.
