DNA Evidence Links Suspect To Three Goldsboro Murders

Posted May 2, 2001 1:54 a.m. EDT

— After more than 10 years of cold leads, Goldsboro Police credit DNA with solving three murders.

State investigators recently ran DNA tests on Lynwood Forte for a rape case. The evidence not only links him to that case, but also the murders of three elderly people in Goldsboro in 1990.

Forte's mother says, despite the DNA results, that her son has been wrongly accused.
