DNA, genealogy crack decades-old cold case killing

Modern investigative tools led authorities to track down who they said killed an Anne Arundel County teenager more than a half-century ago. Pamela Lynn Conyers, was a 16-year-old student at Glen Burnie High School who was last seen alive on Oct. 16, 1970, after she drove the family car to run an errand at the Harundale mall in Glen Burnie. The car was found three days later, and her body was recovered less than 24 hours after that alongside what was then a construction site for Maryland Route 100. Investigators said Pamela had been strangled, and now, authorities know who did it.
