(ConservativeHub.com) – For decades, the families of three young women waited without answers as to who killed their loved ones along I-65. Police searched for answers for years to the cold cases, known as the Days Inn or I-65 murders, as the perpetrator robbed and murdered his victims at hotels in Kentucky and Indiana. However, after more than three decades, investigators now think they know who committed these brutal crimes.
On Tuesday, April 5, Indiana State Police announced they identified Harry Edward Greenwell as the man responsible for killing three female hotel clerks along I-65 and assaulting a fourth. He allegedly committed these offenses between 1987 and 1990. Authorities knew Greenwell for various crimes he committed from 1963 to 1998, and he eventually passed away from cancer in 2013 in New Albin, Iowa.
Police identified Greenwell as the suspect with investigative genealogy, a process that uses DNA to find a family matching a suspect’s genetics before investigators then find the suspect within the family tree. Local news station WHAS11 shared more information about this during their newscast:
While nothing can truly console these families, hopefully, knowing the criminal who most likely assaulted and killed their loved ones has been identified provides some closure and peace of mind to this long-overdue case.
