Could there be a new breakthrough in this 50 year old case?

Investigators helped by advances in DNA technology finally have forensic evidence linking longtime suspect Albert DeSalvo to the last of the 1960s killings attributed to the Boston Strangler, leading many involved in the case to hope it can finally be put to rest.

DeSalvo's remains will be exhumed after authorities concluded that DNA from the scene of Mary Sullivan's rape and murder produced a "familial match" with him, Suffolk district attorney Daniel Conley said. Conley said he expected investigators to find an exact match when the evidence is compared with DeSalvo's DNA.

Sullivan, 19, was found strangled in her Boston apartment in January 1964. She had long been considered the strangler's last victim.




So, does anyone think something unexpected will come up and DeSalvo will be found innocent or do you think this will just confirm what we already know? I personally think it will just confirm what we already know about the killings but still, it will be nice to bring closure to the case.
