In the early 2000s, a detective gave the investigation a fresh look and obtained DNA samples from Nancy’s bedspread, a slipper, and towels, including one found beside her body.
According to the affidavit, last year December authorities got information about the suspect Tudor Chirila but couldn’t take his DNA test. It was in April when his son who lives in Newport Beach, California gave the DNA sample which closely matched the DNA samples received from the place of the crime.
The suspected Tudor Chirila of Reno, survived a suicide attempt on September 8, when he was called to give his DNA sample at Washoe County Detention Facility.
