It took more than a decade and a half to find this nog.
The police are incompetent.
After a DNA match, a man has been arrested and charged with a woman’s murder that happened nearly 16 years ago.
The victim, Pamela Crisler was stabbed to death in her Athens apartment in August 2002.
The suspect in Crisler’s killing remained on the run for over a decade until forensic science caught up with him. Investigators arrested and charged 34-year-old Salaam Laroche in the murder.
Few who live in the apartment complex where Crisler died knew she was a substance abuse counselor and knew the grim details of her violent death.
“Cause of death was multiple sharp injuries, resulting from someone being stabbed to death,” said Sgt. David Norris, Athens-Clark County Police Department.
