PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) – Sheriff’s officials say the suspect in the 1995 murder of a woman in Kitsap County has been identified through DNA.

KING-TV reports Kitsap County Sheriff John Gese said Douglas Keith Krohne is suspected of killing 61-year-old Patricia Lorraine Barnes.

Krohne died in 2016.

Gese says Teas-based lab Othram helped solve the case after the sheriff’s office reopened its investigation in 2018.

Barnes’ body was found unclothed and partially covered along a rural road in Kitsap County in August 1995.

She had been shot in the head.

Krohne lived in Seattle and Tacoma around 1995 and detectives said he had a lengthy criminal history including a kidnapping arrest in 1994.
