New tip reopens 45-year-old cold case of murdered paperboy
She shared a startling story with Will Ott and then with police.
"She basically broke down in tears when she told me that her father was the murderer," Ott said. "The father had threatened her over the years, 'If you mess up, I'll do to you what I did to the newspaper boy'."
"You know, it'd kind of been a dark, dark family secret and, you know, they didn't feel comfortable coming forward while he was still alive," Jarvis added. "According to them, he admitted to being involved with this crime and a couple other crimes also. We're kind of focused in that direction now. That's kind of the avenue we're taking with the investigation is trying to confirm what they told us."
The witness's family members told Det. Sgt. Jarvis their father had a temper. That morning in 1970, they said he snapped.
"Family says the witness had a cup of coffee and Mike had came from the bank to 12 South Harris and rode out in front of him. The witness slams the brakes, spilling his coffee. According to the daughter, her father was very short-tempered and basically abducted Mike at that point," Ott explained.
