    “We have an idea who it is,” said Detective Jim Tomko of the Lake County Sheriff’s Department Crime Lab. He said investigators have been looking for the individual for years.

    I am not sure this is correctly reported...? As far as I can tell from Google maps these two streets don't have a corner in common. Anyone local here?

    But Maryland Street is not far at all from the campus that Benita Spears was last seen at and John Len Taylor's walking route would also have taken him thereabouts.
