If you missed it this weekend, Star reporter Mike McGraw wrote a fascinating piece on the just-solved murder of Richard DeLeon Hill. Hill was killed in 1968, his body found at the south end of the ASB Bridge with a single gunshot wound to the side of his head.

Kansas City Police, who came upon new evidence in the case while investigating the separate homicide of political leader Leon Jordan, say it’s the oldest cold case the department has yet solved.
