    Police say that they have closed a 34-year-old homicide case after determining that a person of interest died in 2001.
    The case dates back to March 20, 1983 when police were called to an apartment building on High Park Avenue by the roommate of 36-year-old Graham Hugh Pearce.
    Upon arrival, officers located Pearce’s lifeless body on a bathroom floor. A post-mortem examination then determined that Pearce had died as a result of a stab wound.
    In April, police issued a news release appealing for information in the decades-old cold case.
    At the time, police said that they had identified Ronald Thomas Gale, then 22 years old, as a person of interest in the case but had only done so after his death.
