SAN DIEGO — A man who police say is linked by DNA to the brutal kidnap rape and murder of an Ohio teenager almost 39 years ago may be in San Diego County, and authorities have issued a warrant for his arrest.

Robert Bowman, 70, is wanted in connection with the murder of 14-year-old Eileen Adams, whose beaten and strangled body was discovered in Monroe, Michigan, six weeks after she was reported missing from her Ohio home in December 1967.
