Authorities: Socks help solve 28-year-old cold case murder

September 4, 2019

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A pair of socks helped lead to an arrest in the killing of a Pennsylvania woman nearly 30 years ago, authorities said.

Philadelphia prosecutors and state police announced the arrest of Theodore Dill Donahue, now 52, on charges of murder and other counts in the 1991 death of his 27-year-old girlfriend, Denise Sharon Kulb. State police made the arrest Tuesday following a reexamination of the case, which began in 2015.

Kulb’s body was found Nov. 12, 1991, in a wooded area of an undeveloped cul-de-sac in a residential community about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Philadelphia. Authorities believe the body was moved there after Kulb was murdered.

Kulb was a mother, daughter, sister and friend who “deserved far better than to be killed and left in a location unknown to those who mourned her,” District Attorney Larry Krasner said.

Authorities say the case was built on new investigative tools, including photo-enhancing technology that connected a pair of separated socks, one of which was found on the body.

1. Fascinating, but sounds like the case is relying on a thin thread.
