People - 02-19


A dirty napkin cast aside at a hockey game last month led to the arrest of a Minnesota man as the suspect in a woman’s 26-year-old cold-case murder. The suspect, Jerry Westrom, 52, of Isanti, hadn’t been on the radar of investigators until 2018. Now, he faces one count of second-degree murder in the 1993 death of 35-year-old Jeanie Ann Childs.
