Quebec police identify killer in 1975 teenage murder cold case

Canadian police say they have solved one of the most high-profile cold cases in Quebec history

LONGUEUIL, Quebec — Canadian police said on Tuesday they had solved one of the most high-profile cold cases in Quebec history.

Police in Longueuil, Quebec, said DNA evidence gave them 100% certainty that Franklin Maywood Romine murdered 16-year-old Sharron Prior in 1975.

The body of Romine, who died in 1982 at the age of 36, was exhumed from a West Virginia cemetery in early May for DNA testing to confirm its connection to the crime.

Longueuil police say the DNA of Romine, who had a long criminal history, matches a sample found at the murder scene. He also matched the physical description of the suspect given by a witness.

Prior’s rape and murder had remained unsolved since she disappeared on March 29, 1975, after leaving to meet friends at a pizzeria near her home in Montreal’s Pointe-St-Charles neighborhood.

His body was found three days later in a wooded area of ​​Longueuil, on the South Shore of Montreal.
