    DNA links Ky. man to couple whose headstone reads ‘Kidnapped and Slain’

    JEFFERSON, Wis. - Engraved beneath intertwined hearts that form a headstone at the grave site of Tim Hack and Kelly Drew are words that have haunted their small southeastern Wisconsin community for nearly three decades: "Kidnapped and Slain."
    <SNIP>

    On Thursday, Wisconsin investigators armed with a DNA match arrested a 76-year-old in Louisville, Ky., who had been a handyman at the reception site. Prosecutors have charged Edward W. Edwards with two counts of first-degree murder. He faces life in prison if convicted.
    District Attorney Susan V. Happ declined to comment on what led investigators back to Edwards, saying only that new evidence had emerged since he was first questioned in 1980.

    Serial killer’s daughter reveals how she turned him in to police

    "...April Balascio, 48, told People the harrowing details of discovering that her father, Edward Wayne Edwards, was responsible for the 1980 murders of two people in Watertown, Wis., after investigators in 2009 revealed evidence in the unsolved crime.

    Before Edwards’ eventual arrest, the state of Wisconsin had reopened the “sweetheart murder” cold case, Detective Chad Garcia told People. State investigators reportedly provided evidence to the public in 2009 with the hopes that someone would have some information in the case...

    n 2009, Edwards admitted to killing Timothy Hack and Kelly Drew, WMTV reported earlier. He later admitted to at least three other murders.

    Edwards was handed two life prison sentences and also was sentenced to death for another case, the outlet said at the time. He died in prison before he was executed...

    The interview and case are included in next Monday’s episode of “People Magazine Investigates” on Investigation Discovery..."
