Another notorious and cold case is set to begin in Boulder: http://www.dailycamera.com/news/2009/jun/08/jury-selection-susannah-chase-murder-trial/ Susannah Chase was murdered a year and almost to the day after JBR. There was a lot of speculation over the years. A DNA match found the killer, and there can be no innocent reason why his DNA was found on her. She was a random victim in the wrong place at the wrong time. The BPD missed a trail of blood---a citizen reported it the next morning. The trail of blood led to the discovery of a BAT---DNA on the bat was traced to killer's girlfriend (she was not part of it--he just used her bat). He attacked other women in Denver shortly after the murder of Susannah. He even told someone that he beat a woman, and it was reported. The name given had a few letters off--but it wouldn't have taken a rocket scientist to check with surrounding communties for similar crimes. That wasn't done, and the tip lay in a box. He did 7 years in a Wyoming prison for attacking a woman. It was only after he was released that his DNA eventually got in the database, and they got a match. He had returned to Colorado to live with his mother. More precise DNA testing several years ago revealed the killer was either of Indian or hispanic descent. (He's from Chili). This guy had a history of violence against women, with escalating behavior. He didn't just wake up one morning and decide to kill a random woman. Most likely Susannah was beaten to death because she fought him. It wouldn't surprise me if the murderer of JBR had a similar history who was no stranger to crime, including burglaries.
