Here are the facts-as we know them.

Blood from the suspect, along with his belt, were found inside the book store at the time. But, so far…DNA has not lead to a suspect.

Back in 2017, a Virginia Laboratory, used the DNA from the crime scene, and released images of a possible suspect. The lab used the DNA to break down the possibilities of the suspects ancestry, hair, and skin color. Two years later the family is still desperate for closure.
