Gunman Indicted In Washington Heights Cold Case Murder, DA …

WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, NY — A man has been charged for a Washington Heights murder that occurred nearly 30 years ago, the Manhattan district attorney’s office announced.

On July 11, 1990, Jiminez and de la Cruz began arguing near the corner of West 175th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, prosecutors said. During the argument, Jiminez pulled a gun on de la Cruz and shot him multiple times in the head and torso, prosecutors said.

Jiminez was on the run for nearly 30 years, traveling from city to city using different identities, prosecutors said. The Manhattan district attorney’s cold case project, the NYPD’s Cold Case Homicide Squad and the NYPD’s 33rd precinct tracked the man down

Convicted killer indicted in decades cold murder case

BLUEFIELD, W.Va. — Mary Osborne entered the sanctuary of the First Church of God the morning of Dec. 28, 1972, to set out the trash on garbage collection day in this southernmost West Virginia community.

A devoted parishioner, it was her house of worship. Her sacred ground.

But on this day, she was bludgeoned to death with a hammer by a mysterious assailant — until this week when the Mercer County Grand Jury indicted a state prison inmate for Mary Osborne’s murder.

Police said they cracked the four-decade old cold case by tracing a single fingerprint found on a church sink faucet handle to Tommie Lee Mollohan, who has been serving a life sentence since 1974 for a separate murder that occurred near Charleston two weeks after Osborne’s death.

County Prosecutor George Sitler said new biomatch technology traced the spigot fingerprint to Mollohan.

“This is really a remarkable thing,” Sitler said. “This crime happened when
