DNA Cracks Cold Murder Case

TOPPENISH -- DNA helps link an Oregon man to a Lower Valley murder case more than two decades old.
In 1987, an orchard owner found the body of 20 year old Jenece Wilson near Granger.
Police knew she had been killed, but had no suspects.
Earlier this year the sheriffs office sent DNA samples to a private laboratory.
It linked 41 year old Samuel Posada of Hermiston as a suspect.
Family members say Posada's arrest will bring them closure.
"I don't think he should be able to walk the streets again, he's gotta pay for what happened to him, but I don't want to get involved in building up my anger against him," says Jenece's adoptive father Jim Wilson.
Posada grew up in the Lower Valley.
He and Wilson attended Toppenish High school at the same time.
Authorities say Posada will be extradited to Yakima county.
He faces a charge of first degree murder.
