    Police confirm dead Oregon convict responsible for Highway of Tears slaying

    It was hard to watch Colleen's brother, to see the pain that still exists for loved ones after almost 40 years. I hope this discovery can at least bring their family some peace, and that E-Pana will have continued success in their ongoing investigations so that other families can know what happened and who is responsible for their missing and murdered family members.

    Yeah, hopefully he's rotting but I kind of agree with her brother that spoke about Fowler not having to answer/stand trial for Colleen's murder so in a way it's too bad he's already dead.

    Her brother spoke for a few minutes at the press conference and even after all these years it was very emotional for him. I also don't think the family ever thought it would be solved, I think he used the word "stunned" at the beginning...

    Couldn't help but notice Gary Shinkaruk standing behind Colleen's brother Shawn as he spoke, swallowing hard to control emotion, and speaking reassuredly to him when he had finished. These officers have such a hard time with these cases, and my heart goes out to them as well.

    Thank you and hugs to E-Pana !!

    It was interesting to hear that the DNA was submitted to Interpol and that is how the match to Fowler came about. After all these years, I wonder what prompted LE to finally go through Interpol, and have to wonder why this can't be done in a shorter timeframe in the future.

    Glad to hear that it was finally solved, this case especially caught my eye because it was so similar to the case I’m delving into now... only three days apart!
