ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - Elizabethtown police say a cold case murder may be heating up. In 1987, Vicki Heath, a clerk at a Super 8 motel, was robbed, sodomized, and eventually shot to death. The case was never solved, but police hope a sketch created based on descriptions given by other victims who escaped, will help lead them to the killer.
In March, word came from the state police crime lab that there was a DNA match linking Heath's murder to two others and an attempted murder from the same time period.
A victim who escaped provided police with a composite sketch of the suspect. His most distinctive feature was his green eyes, one of which was noticeably lazy.
Police are also looking at a similar case from Rochester, Minnesota in 1991. Here too, the victim was robbed and sodomized. She provided authorities with a similar sketch.
