According to 19 Action News reporter Shannon O'Brien (www.woio.com), Bay Village detectives collected a DNA sample from a person of interest in the Amy Mihaljevic case this past week.
An interesting development, for sure. But let's not get too excited. According to Mark Spaetzel, the reason for collecting DNA at this time may simply be to have it available to detectives when new technology is developed in the future that may make it possible to link this man--or others who have also given DNA in the past--to Amy's murder.
Does it mean Bay Village Police actually have the DNA of Amy's murderer to compare it to? Maybe.
Does it mean the case is hot again? Absolutely.
Whoever committed this crime is not resting well this holiday season.
