Colo. police develop database for tips

By Vanessa Miller

BOULDER, Colo. — The Boulder Police Department has changed the way it records leads on criminal investigations after detectives failed to follow up on a 2001 tip that suggested "Diego Ivan Olmos Alcalad" as a suspect in the 1997 Susannah Chase homicide.

Although the name in the tip was misspelled, Diego Olmos Alcalde, 39, was arrested last year on suspicion of raping and fatally beating the University of Colorado student with a baseball bat. The tip was discovered only after Alcalde's DNA -- entered into a federal database because of an unrelated kidnapping conviction -- matched crime-scene evidence.
