FBI reopens investigations on Colonial Parkway Murders
January 22, 2010
The FBI has re-opened an investigation of the unsolved 1980s Virginia slayings known as the Colonial Parkway Murders. It has created a new e-mail account in the hope of acquiring tips regarding the murders.
Between 1986 and 1989, eight people were killed or went missing along the 23-mile route spanning Jamestown and Yorktown. The FBI stated that DNA tests and other new techniques will be used to give new insight on these crimes. More than 3,500 investigative reports composed during the peak of the killings are being re-examined, prioritizing a list of approximately 130 suspects.
Authorities believe the four incidents are linked and resulted from either a single person or two people working together.
