'In Cold Blood' link to case
A Florida detective trying to crack a 53-year-old unsolved murder case will ask a Kansas judge for permission to exhume and extract DNA from the bodies of two notorious killers made famous in Truman Capote’s 1966 true-crime novel, In Cold Blood.
Sarasota county sheriff Det Kim McGath said she believed the two men convicted for the 1959 murder of Herbert Clutter, his wife and two children in Holcomb, Kansas, might be responsible for a similar killing one month later of a family in Osprey, Florida.
The case of the Florida family, the Walkers, has long stumped investigators. Cliff Walker, his wife and their two children were shot in their home. – (Reuters)
