New DNA testing has linked an Oregon man to the murder of 16-year-old, Shelley Connolly, that took place in 1978.

Correction: In a previous edition of this article, it was stated that data bases such as '' and '23 and Me' were used to link the suspect to the murder. It has been corrected to say national DNA database linked the suspect to the murder.
