With using such latest technology like "DNA Tracing Technology" on Tuesday, a trial date was set for a Florida man accused of raping and killing a New York teen girl back in 1984.
The police department of Rochester said that by using 'FAMILIAL DNA TESTING' they got the right leads which made them reach out to Timothy Williams.
As WHEC reported, the accused who is identified for the name as Timothy Williams who is 56-year-old was set for trial on the 7th of June 2021. Initially, Timothy Williams was pleaded 'Not Guilty 'for murdering the teen girl who is identified as 14-year-old Wendy Jerome who was found beaten and raped in an alcove behind a school near her Rochester home.
The authorities of the police department said that they sent the DNA sample from the crime scene to the State Police Crime lab where the DNA samples were compared to find a biological relation.
The captain of the Rochester police department, Capt. Frank Umbrino said that Timothy was 20 when raped and killed Wendy and moved to Florida a short time after the brutal murder. Also, he said that Timothy has visited Rochester several times in the past 35 years.
He also said: "He did not know the victim, nor did the victim's family know him," Umbrino said, adding that the department is investigating whether Williams has been linked to any other cold cases or not.
However, a report from WHEC says that Timothy was due back in court on the 22nd of December on charges of a motion argument. Also, the authorities who cracked the case have not revealed how they obtained Williams' DNA.
