16 July, 2018, 20:03
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.
