ice Oregon 1978 Murder of Teen Girl

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Advances in DNA technology have brought Eugene police closer to an arrest in the strangulation of a teenage girl more than 30 years ago.
Eugene police say they have identified a person of interest in the death of 16-year-old Karen Whiteside, whose body was found in March 1978 at an elementary school after she left her nearby home to walk to a friend's house.

The death is one of the first to be tackled by a new "cold case" squad made up of retired volunteer police officers.
The Register-Guard newspaper in Eugene reported that detectives received new tips after news stories about the cold case squad ran earlier this year.
They are awaiting the results of DNA tests being conducted on evidence gathered in the original investigation.
