    I have done a search but haven't found a thread about the murder of Karen Klaas. The former wife of Bill Medley, one of the Righteous Brothers. She died on February 3rd 1976, four days after she was discovered unconscious on the floor of her home. The police reopened the case in 2009, but that now seems to have tapered off again.

    Edit: Name should be Klass and not Klaas. Can't seem to edit the title.

    Police Identify Killer of Slain Righteous Brothers Singer Bill Medley's Ex-Wife
    January 30, 2017

    In a press conference attended by Medley and his son, Darrin on Monday, authorities said Kenneth Eugene Troyer, a serial rapist shot dead after escaping prison in 1982 was confirmed as Karen Klaas' killer.

    Troyer was 29 at the time of the January 30, 1976 murder. Klaas was 32.

    District Attorney Jackie Lacey said familial DNA was used as a “last resort” and is an “invaluable resource” for cold cases.

    I can't find much info on Troyer. I wonder if he was known to be in the area at the time or lived near there.
