DETROIT, Mich. — A 38-year-old murder mystery on the Michigan State University campus has been solved with a DNA match, but there will be no arrest. Police say the killer has been dead for a decade.

The body of Marie Jackson, a 19-year-old Lansing teen who worked at a drive-in restaurant, was found in a wooded area on the southern part of the campus about a week after she was reported missing in 1970. She had been sexually assaulted and strangled, police said.
