From Cleveland Plain Dealer:
In 1994, someone savagely beat and raped Rotunda Baker, wrapped the unconscious woman in garbage bags and left her to die on the side of a trash-lined Cleveland street. Her killer remained unknown, but prosecutors now believe they have found him 14 years later, with the help of national DNA databases.
William Scott, 44, faces a host of charges for the rape and murder of Baker, 27.
Scott was serving a 12-year prison sentence for rape in Pennsylvania and was to be released this week, said Ryan Miday, a spokesman for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason. Instead, police in Pennsylvania arrested Scott, who awaits an extradition hearing.
I just want to send out a huge thank you to the Cuyahoga County cold case squad and all those who helped make this squad's work possible. I have no doubt that this work saved someone from rape and possibly murder.
Keep up the good work.
