New Evidence Found In Cold Case Murder

By

New DNA evidence has surfaced in the unsolved murder of 96-year-old Lila Leach in 2010.

“This is a continual emotional roller coaster,” Leach’s daughter, Elaine May, said. “We go from thinking things are going to be solved to finding that no, it went into a cold case. Now, we’re on the top of the roller coaster with some new DNA evidence.”

Leach was attacked in her home July 16, 2010, and died from her injuries.

“Someone out there has the information that we need to solve this,” Alachua County Sheriff’s spokesman Art Forgey said.

The family is offering an $8,000 reward for a tip leading to Leach’s attacker.

“We want the community’s help to help us identify that person,” Forgey said.
