A 67-year-old murder suspect named Kirby R. King, who strangled a 22-year-old Missouri woman, Karla Jane Delcour, to death and dumped her lifeless body in the woods, finally pleaded guilty after three decades.
During the investigation, authorities revealed that the murder suspect initially killed the Missouri woman inside a home and dumped her body, discovered with cords encircling her wrists and neck, along the woods in Franklin County, only 2 miles away from her home.
The murder suspect was originally questioned and investigated in 1987, but unfortunately, he was not charged due to the lack of evidence to the murder case during that time until it was reopened in 2018, which led to his arrest.
