Wow! They have finally identified Christine Jessops killer ! Breaking news now. He was Calvin Hoover 28 at the time and he and his wife known to the Jessop family which is extremely sad for them! I can’t imagine. He committed suicide in 2015. This happened so close to our home. Poor baby . RIP. I hope this brings the family closure.
Sad for Guy Paul Moran losing those years of his life but now the black shadow of is he or isn’t he guilty is over . Thank goodness to put closure on this . Maybe he took Cheryl Hanson too ?
I was reading about that just yesterday ! Cool that it was thru the genealogy databases that they found a match to their DNA sample !
Awesome news.Would be great to have the full story released as to exactly how they arrived at this person, and where he fit in all along. Was he a previous suspect. Did people bring his name up in the initial investigation and the police put him aside because of their tunnel vision on Guy Paul Morin.
Knowing all this publicly could help a lot of these cold cases like Donna’s for them to go back and look for the same kind of missteps.
