    Charles Wright arrested in 2005 cold case murder of Pertina Epps (21)

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/...lling-82569574

    A 56-year-old Southern California man has been arrested in connection with the 2005 killing of a woman near Los Angeles after DNA and fingerprint evidence was used to identify him, authorities said.

    Pertina Epps, 21, was found strangled on April 26, 2005, under a carport in the city of Gardena, the Los Angeles County Sheriff?s Department said.

    The case went cold but was reopened in 2021 when investigators reexamined forensic evidence left at the crime scene using new technology, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

    Charles Wright was identified as a possible suspect and arrested Thursday in Hawthorne, sheriff's officials said. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.

    Wright was released after posting bond, the Times reported. He is scheduled for an arraignment on June 28.

    Detectives do not believe Wright and Epps knew each other, sheriff?s officials said.

    Released on bond to kill again. Way to go, LA DA....

    Apparently he has been a school teacher in the LA district since 1999. He resigned after he was charged with murder. Authorities say he didn't know the victim, which somehow makes this worse IMO.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.
