    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Police have a suspect in the disappearance and death of Aleszandra "Alie" Berrelez, a cold case that has spanned 18 years.

    The 5-year-old girl disappeared on May 18, 1993, from the Golden Nugget apartment complex on Grand Avenue in Englewood. Her body was found four days later in Deer Creek Canyon in Jefferson County.

    Her body was in a duffel bag that had been tossed down a ravine. She was still dressed in the denim jumper she was wearing when she disappeared. She had been smothered to death.

    What was remarkable, IMO, was the fact that Alie's lifeless body was found in the mountains 14 miles away from her home, by a bloodhound named Yogi. http://www.unsolved.com/ajaxfiles/mur_alie_berrelez.htm

    RIP Sweet Alie. I hope you and Yogi are having a blast playing in Heaven together!

    Investigators taking a new look at the unsolved 1993 kidnapping and murder of 5-year-old Alie Berrelez matched a DNA sample to a long dead suspect in the case — ending a saga for the little girl's family.

    Nicholas Randolph Stofer was a focus of the investigation as far back as February 1994, but prosecutors never felt enough evidence existed to file charges and his DNA had not previously been matched to evidence in the case. Stofer died of a drug overdose in 2001.

    I hope that her family will be able to have closure. Thank God for the advances in DNA testing.

    Be sure of this: he has paid the price for his crime.

    And the foundation the family formed in the wake of her disappearance has placed hundreds of bloodhounds with law enforcement around the nation.

    I wish they would have tested the DNA sooner so the family could have some sort of closure and know that the killer of their daughter wasn't still out there lurking around. Wonder what took them so long to do the dna testing.
