Boston cops follow DNA trail to Atlanta in teen’s murder.
Evidence kept for 24 years helped nab a suspect in the brutal sexual assault and strangulation death of a teenage girl, a crime that had remained unsolved since she was found in a vacant lot in Roxbury in 1984.
A revived Boston police cold case unit cracked the case, and yesterday Sultan Omar Chezulu, 60, formerly known as Robert Scott, was arrested in Atlanta for the murder of Yolanda Hernandez, who was 18 when she was killed. Genetic material from the old evidence that predated police DNA tests led to Chezulu, a career criminal.
