On Sunday, Allen County prosecutors announced the arrest of a 59-year-old Grabill man in connection with the 30-year-old abduction and murder of 8-year-old April Tinsley in April 1988.

Miller was taken into custody Sunday at his Grabill, Ind., home by Fort Wayne Police Department and Indiana State Police, court documents said.

According to the court document, Miller allegedly confessed after learning police had a DNA match linking him to the murder.

The suspect is being held at the Allen County jail without bail. According to an affidavit, when police went to his trailer Sunday and asked if he knew why they were there, he said: "April Tinsley".

April's body was found in a ditch, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from her Fort Wayne neighborhood, three days after she disappeared in April 1988.

That's when Miller admitted to abducting Tinsley from Hoagland Street in Fort Wayne, taking her to his trailer, and having sex with her. The DNA pulled from those was used to tie him to Tinsley's rape and death. In 1988, 8-year-old April Tinsley had been found murdered and sexually assaulted.

"Hi honey", one note read, according to a picture released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The probable cause affidavit says policed use DNA profiling and help from noted genetic genealogist CeCe Moore to develop information that led them to Miller.

The little girl had reportedly been raped, but although the killer left DNA evidence behind, investigators were not able to match the sample to a suspect until earlier this year, according to court documents obtained by the Indy Star. Once again, the cold case was cracked thanks to the dramatic scientific breakthrough pairing forensic DNA with genealogical research. He is slated to make his first court appearance Monday.

In 2004, a threatening note, nude photos, and used condoms were discovered on the bicycles of three young girls. "I been watching you I am the same person that kinapped an rape an kill Aproil Tinsely you are my next victim (sic)". He answered "April Tinsley", before admitting the crime to investigators, according to court documents.

Police in IN believe they have finally caught a suspect whose sickening crime has haunted investigators for more than 30 years. After that early July development, police began surveillance on Miller's Grabill mobile home and began to analyze his trash.

He said he then sodomized the deceased body, according to the affidavit.
