Pa. troopers hope technology cracks '68 murder case
By Kathleen Brady Shea
CHESTER, Pa. — On Nov. 18, 1968, a state trooper on routine patrol found a body that appeared to have been dumped in a Chester County field along the westbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
More than 40 years later, the trooper's colleagues are still trying to identify the man - and hoping that technology recently made available to law enforcement might reveal new evidence.
