An article that was originally published November 3, 1984 by AP
I'm glad that these families have answers now after all these years. I'm sure the answers do not diminish the pain they have felt for over two decades but now they know who did this to their children.
It's a shame he never paid for these crimes.
God bless their families."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James

Thanks for posting this Chicagofa13. I knew of the murders but had not seen this update. Hearing stories like this makes me hopeful for all the other cases similar to this that have been cold for years that through forensics and the dedication of LE answers may come to those families too.
Melvin thought he was taking his secret to the grave. He was such a coward that even upon knowing he was going to die from cancer he still didn't say anything and finally provide some answers for these families.'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated'
