Man Arrested In Connection With 30-Year-Old Murder Of Young Girl

Eight-year-old April Tinsley was abducted raped and murdered on Good Friday in 1988

New DNA technology has led to an arrest in a cold case involving an eight-year-old girl who was allegedly raped, killed and left in an in ditch 30 years ago. He'll be formally arraigned in Allen Superior Court Monday.

From there, police recovered three used condoms from Miller's trash.

A disturbing message on a barn door near the place of the murder read, "I kill 8-year- old April Marie Tisley". It wasn't clear if Miller has a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.

April went missing on April 1, 1988, and her body was found three days later in a ditch about 20 miles from her home in Fort Wayne.

In 1988, an 8-year-old girl, was raped and murdered after being abducted from her neighborhood in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Janet told the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette she was surprised when more than 70 people attended because after so many years she thought her daughter's story had been forgotten.

"Hi honey. I been watching you", read one note released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to the Star.

Using public genealogy databases, police were able to narrow down the suspects to two brothers.

"April M Tinsley did you find her other shoe haha I will kill agin'".

And he reserved a special word for team-mate Luka Modric: 'He is, not one of, the best midfield player in the world. In the Champions League final, I didn't see two better centre-halves than him - only more ruthless.

According to the affidavit, Miller not only admitted of abducting and murdering the girl, he further gave grave details about Tinsley death. She took about 10 minutes to die, and then he allegedly had sex with the corpse.

In 2004, investigators had a short-lived breakthrough: The unidentified killer began leaving handwritten notes, photographs of his body, and used condoms in various locations. Her body was found days later in Spencerville. After allegedly dumping her body, Miller said he later found one of her shoes in his vehicle, which he dumped into another ditch. In 2004, police found three used condoms and a note saying that the person who left them had raped and killed Tinsley, the affidavit said. He said in an interview Monday detectives quickly assembled "a short list" of suspects after April was killed but investigators had little hard evidence to move forward with an arrest.

Investigators developed a DNA profile from the condoms, and "it was determined to be consistent with the profile developed from the underwear of April M. Tinsley".

As investigators struggled to solve her murder over the years, they were taunted by messages left by the alleged killer.

Court documents say when asked by police Sunday if he knew why they were at his home, Miller answered, "April Tinsley".

Thirty years after the grisly murder of 8-year-old April Tinsley, an arrest has been made.

Miller was arrested on suspicion of murder, child molestation and confinement.

In May, the Fort Wayne Police Department submitted the suspect's DNA to Parabon NanoLabs.

According to the Indy Star report, Miller confessed to kidnapping, raping and murdering April in his trailer on April 1, 1988, before dumping her body in a ditch.
