‘End is near’: Authorities send message to ‘person of interest’ in 1987 cold case murder

Authorities say they are aggressively pursuing a "person of interest" in the 1987 cold case murder of Analia Zavodny.


"The killer has to know the end is near," said Bedford Police Chief Kris Nietert. "Analia exposed you for the failure that you are. The final nails are being driven in your coffin. Given what I know, I would not go to the store and buy green bananas. The next time I call a press conference, we will reveal the name of the suspect after an arrest has be made."

Zavodny was found murdered at Alamo apartments in Bedford in 1987.

(...) Her boyfriend was arrested in 1989 and tried in her murder, but he was found not guilty.

In July 2015, the Bedford Police Department announced recent discoveries prompted officers to reopen the case.
