CO - Tracey Wooden, 16, Denver, 12 August 1985
Hope this is the right spot to put this. I can't find where Tracey ever had a cold case thread, and charges won't be pursued since the new DNA match pointed to a convicted rapist who died in prison in 2006.
DA: Killer ID'd in 1985 cold case murder of Denver teen
DENVER, Colo. -- Authorities in Denver have identified a suspect in a 30-year-old cold case murder using DNA, according to the Denver District Attorney's Office statement.
Officials there announced Monday they believe Daniel Fellovetr, a convicted rapist who died in a Colorado prison in 2006, sexually assaulted and killed 16-year-old Tracey Wooden, who was found strangled to death in a Denver alley on Aug. 12, 1985....
...The investigation into Wooden's murder languished in part because some of the physical evidence from the crime scene had been shipped to a private lab in California after the murder, and investigators from Denver's cold case team ran into roadblocks trying to recover it....
In February of this year, investigators were able to recover the evidence....
...Kimbrough says that her office won't pursue charges because Fellovetr is dead, but said "there's no question" he committed the crime....
