17 years later, suspect arrested in murder of Palatine teen
The murder of a Palatine teenager almost two decades ago may finally be solved.
Police in Racine, Wisconsin say they have a suspect in the 1997 murder of Amber Creek.
The 14-years-old’s body was found in February 1997 in Racine County, northeast of Lake Geneva.
It took investigators 16 months to identify the teenager. They used dental records and used the missing child database. The cause of death was asphyxiation.
Racine County’s sheriff is not releasing details. He scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon.
