GALT, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say a suspect in the sexual assault and murder of a 79-year-old woman in a small Northern California community in 1988 has been identified through advanced DNA analysis on the victim’s nail scrapes.
Galta Police Chief Brian Kalinowski said Tuesday that Terry Leroy Bramble was 32 when he sexually assaulted, stabbed and strangled Lucille Hultgren at her home.
He says Bramble was homeless and was a registered sex offender when he died in 2011 of natural causes while living under a bridge. Bramble’s DNA, collected in 1992 during a conviction for sexual assault in San Joaquin County, matched the DNA found in nail scraps collected from Hultgren’s body.
