New DNA evidence names suspect in 34-year-old cold case murder in Galt

For more than three decades, the killing of 79-year-old Lucille Hultgren in her home in Galt has gone unsolved. It’s been the small Sacramento County community’s sole cold case murder. But now a DNA match on the victim’s fingernail scrapings has identified Hultgren’s killer, a transient and sex offender who lived under a bridge on Highway 99 until his death in 2011, authorities said on Tuesday.
