PLUS, MATT KROSCHEL WITH THE PEOPLE THAT WERE THERE WHEN A NUCLEAR BOMB IS DESTINED TO BE DETONATED IN COLORADO. CRAZY. THAT IS GOT TO BE WHAT IT WAS LIKE. IT WAS A MURDER CASE THAT HAD GONE COLD, BUT NEARLY 40 YEARS LATER, INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY NOW KNOW WHO KILLED JEANNIE MOORE. THE 18-YEAR-OLD DISAPPEARED IN 1981, SHE HAD BEEN LAST SEEN AT INTERSTATE 70, TRYING TO GET A RIDE TO WORK. A FEW DAYS LATER HER BODY WAS FOUND. INVESTIGATORS ANNOUNCED THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED HER KILLER. WE TALKED TO MOORE’S SISTERS TODAY. NEW DNA TECHNOLOGY HELPED INVESTIGATORS TRACK DOWN HER KILLER. Reporter: IT IS REALLY INCREDIBLE, THE INDIVIDUAL THEY HAVE LINKED TO THE CRIME, WHILE HE IS NO LONGER ALIVE, THEY ARE CONFIDENT . THEY SAY IN FACT HE IS 3.3 TRILLION TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE COMMITTED THE CRIME THAN ANYBODY ELSE. WHILE IT IS TOO SOON TO CALL THIS CLOSURE FOR HER SISTER, THEY SAY THEY HAVE BEEN THINKING OF HER AND KEEPING HER MEMORY ALIVE EVERY SINGLE DAY. HER SISTERS WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW NOBODY IS GOING TO TAKE HER AWAY IN OUR HEARTS. SHE TAUGHT US A LOT OF LESSONS ABOUT STUFF. Reporter: SHE WAS LIKE ANOTHER MOM IN A FAMILY OF EIGHT SIBLINGS. ALI WAS 16 WHEN JEANNIE MOORE DISAPPEARED, AND REMEMBERS HER LEAVING LATE FOR WORK. SHE STILL BLAMES HERSELF. IT IS A LOT OF MEMORIES AND A LOT OF GUILT. Reporter: HER BODY WAS FOUND IN GENESEE PARK, FINGERS WERE POINTED AT ALL THE WRONG PEOPLE INCLUDING A FAMILY MEMBER. NOW, FINALLY, WITH THE SUSPECT — IT IS MIND BLOWING — Reporter: — THE BREAK IN THE CASE CAME. IT ALLOWED INVESTIGATORS TO USE DNA TO BUILD A FAMILY TREE, LEADING UP TO THE SUSPECT. HE WAS 23 WHEN HE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED AND KILLED JEANNIE MOORE. HE IS NO LONGER ALIVE, BUT HIS SISTERS NOW HAVE A FACE. AT LEAST HE IS GONE. I AM SORRY, I HATE TO SAY THAT ABOUT ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. Reporter: AS FOR THE FAMILY — WE HOLD NO GRUDGES WHATSOEVER. Reporter: SISTERS HOPE THE STORY REMINDS OTHERS TO BE VIGILANT. THEY SAY THEY ARE GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE HARD WORK BY INVESTIGATORS HERE AT THE JEFFERSON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE.
