LANCASTER, Pa. - Lancaster County's district attorney said he hopes images of a possible suspect created with the aid of a DNA profile will help solve the killing of an elementary school teacher in 1992.
District Attorney Craig Stedman said Wednesday he hopes the computer-generated images will bring in tips that "will bring some comfort to the family" of Christy Mirack and bring her killer to justice.
Mirack was raped, beaten and strangled inside her apartment in East Lampeter Township on December 21, 1992. The 25-year-old was a first-grade teacher at Rohrerstown Elementary School.
Investigators used DNA from the scene to create images depicting what the killer may have looked like at ages 25, 45, and 55.
Officials have said Mirack either knew her killer or opened the door expecting to see someone else.
