April Tinsley's Cold Case Solved After Killer Taunted Police For 30 Years

By

For over three decades, the killer behind the abduction and murder of April Tinsley has evaded Indiana investigators—until now. 

Thanks to advances in DNA technology, John D. Miller was officially charged with murder, child molestation, and criminal confinement of a victim under 14. Messages Miller sent to four young girls years after the murder also helped put him behind bars. 

In a police interview, Miller reportedly admitted to kidnapping, raping, and choking April—who was 8 years old at the time—to death. In court on Monday, Miller was given no bond, and his next hearing is scheduled for July 19.
