Prosecutors: No match in fed database in Mishawaka murder case

Posted:

Saint Joseph County Prosecutors say no matches were found in a national database for blood found at the scene of a Mishawaka murder.

The body of 84-year-old Lois Hickey was found December 29, 2011 in her East Donaldson Street home.

Police believe the suspect broke through a window, injuring himself and leaving behind blood. More blood was found in the house, matching that found on the window. Samples were sent to a state crime lab, where it was compared to samples in the state's Combined DNA Indexing System. The database contains DNA samples from all people in Indiana convicted of crimes against a person and sentenced to greater than one year in prison since 1998. No match was found in the state database.

The sample was also entered into a national system. Prosecutors say they learned this week that system also didn't find a match.

Prosecutors say the Saint Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit is continuing the investigate the case.
