It’s amazing when a cold case can have an arrest, after all this time. Just wishing our criminal justice would improve so that this felon hadn’t “got away with it” for nearly 10 years.
Andrea Gail Parsons went missing in 1993.
Police in Florida have announced a major development in the case of 10-year-old Andrea Gail Parsons, who has been missing since 1993.
On Thursday, Martin County Sheriff’s Department officials arrested Chester Duane Price, 42 and charged him with first-degree murder and kidnapping of a child under the age of 13, according to ABC News.
Price, a convicted felon, was always a person of interest in the case because he knew Parsons, authorities said. The Sheriff’s Department did not divulge what evidence led them to arrest Price, noting that the investigation is still ongoing and more arrests could follow. Parsons’ body has never been found.
Parsons was reported missing on July 11 after she left her house in a mobile home community in Port Salerno, according to the Palm Beach Post.
