The Pinellas County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office had a break in the unsolved 1987 killing of an 82-year-old widow when 2020 testing showed hairs found at the crime scene were a potential match for three brothers.

One of them was dead. One was eliminated as a suspect through his DNA, which was already indexed in a national database. And one had moved to Mississippi.
