Thawing out Alaska’s cold case murders

The case had grown cold. It was a discouraging inevitability. Sitka Police spent hours combing the area around the crime scene, collecting scattered clothing, traces of blood and hair, even the victim’s jewelry. The body had been found, buried naked beneath a fallen tree near a bike trail the victim had walked down just two mornings earlier. Police uncovered a short-sleeved blouse, a dark green letterman jacket, and a single sock.

A man came forward claiming to be the murderer, with a detail-matching confession that made him a believable suspect.
