Congratulations Montgomery County Police Cold Case Squad

Stark3.jpg Last year I posted briefly about the Montgomery County Police Cold Case Squad’s efforts to solve the 1982 murder of Wendy Lou Stark. I just learned that they solved it. From the beginning of the Washington Post article about the case:

“Montgomery County Detective Joe Mudano was searching an evidence supply room late last year when, on a top shelf, tucked out of plain view, he found a box that apparently had gone missing years ago.

Inside were tiny pieces of evidence from a 26-year-old unsolved slaying.

Using DNA extracted from a cotton swab stored in that box, investigators say they have solved the 1982 slaying of Wendy Stark …”

Good work, Montgomery County, and thank you.
