PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a pair of socks helped lead to an arrest in the killing of a Pennsylvania woman nearly 30 years ago.
Philadelphia authorities say Theodore Dill Donahue is charged with murder and numerous other counts in the 1991 death of his 27-year-old girlfriend, Denise Sharon Kulb. His lawyer says Donahue maintains his innocence.
State police made the arrest Tuesday following a re-examination of the case that began in 2015.
Kulb’s body was found Nov. 12, 1991, in a wooded portion of an undeveloped cul-de-sac in a residential community about 25 miles (40 km) southwest of Philadelphia. Authorities believe the body was moved there after Kulb was murdered.
Authorities say the case was built on new investigative tools, including photo-enhancing technology that connected a pair of separated socks, including one that was found on the body.
