MARTINEZ — On Wednesday prosecutors filed a special circumstances murder charge against Mitchell Lynn Bacom for the 37-year-old kidnapping and homicide of a young teen girl, capping off the surprise announcement this week that the case had been solved.

Bacom, 63, is accused of of murdering 14-year-old Suzanne Bombardier in 1980 by stabbing her to death. The lone charge carries enhancements that accuse Bacom of burglary, kidnapping the young teen, and molesting her, which could make him eligible for the death penalty.

Bacom denied a reporter’s request to interview him in jail Tuesday.

25 years ago there was a bloody bat. Police say only the killer would know that

A Tacoma man serving 46 years for murdering somebody with a knife and gun soon may stand trial for killing somebody with a bat in 1992.

The Pierce County prosecutors office filed murder charges Wednesday against Danny Manoi, 48, after reviewing evidence from Tacoma Police’s cold case department. Manoi is detained at the Monroe Correctional Complex for a 1995 murder.

New evidence cites witnesses who claim Manoi spoke of details of the case that were never made public, said deputy prosecutor Jared Ausserer. Prosecutors are also waiting for results of additional DNA testing.

According to charging documents filed Wednesday in Pierce County Superior Court, Tacoma Police were investigating the death of Tacoma man Bertil Luther on July 9, 1992, when they found a bloodied baseball bat in the backyard of the Tacoma home.

Luther’s body, with several large lacerations on the head, was found in a chair, according to the documents.
