HOKE COUNTY, N.C. — Investigators trying to solve the 1998 kidnapping and killing of 5-year-old Brittany Locklear hope DNA is the break they need.
They plan to test samples taken from Keith Londeree, a former civilian firefighter at Fort Bragg.
After Londerlee's arrest on charges of robbing a bank in Carthage last year, detectives said they found pictures of Locklear in his locker.
Investigators stopped short of calling Londeree a suspect.
The child was kidnapped from her bus stop, raped and killed. Investigators found Locklear's body in a drainage ditch.
