Police say that between 8:30 and 9 p.m. a man approached Ljubica and her eight-year-old brother.
Const. Scott Chapman says, "He offered Ljubica an amount of cash to go with him. He then provided a small amount of change to Michael to ride his bike in the other direction"...
Ljubica's body was found in the backyard of a home in the 1600 block of Hickory Avenue. She had been sexually assaulted and brutally beaten.
Windsor police have released a composite DNA image of a suspect in a 44-year-old cold case involving the homicide of six-year-old Ljubica Topic. The image was created using DNA imaging technology from a private Virginia firm to predict the person's ancestry and potential appearance.
According to the images released by police, the man is likely from Northwest Europe, had fair skin, brown eyes and black hair at the time Topic was killed... Chapman said the image closely resembles an eyewitness composite created in 1971...
More than 40 years ago, near where her body was found, officers discovered two of Topic's teeth, along with an adult tooth investigators believe belonged to the suspect.
