    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.

    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.
