San Francisco PD uses “advanced investigative methods” to make an arrest in 1978 homicide

A 76-year-old man was arrested in suburban Denver on Thursday following a joint operation by San Francisco police, the FBI and the Jefferson County (CO) Sheriff’s office, authorities announced Sunday. He was booked for investigation of homicide in connection with the 1978 death of 15-year-old Marissa Harvey. He may be a suspect in other unsolved homicides.

A joint, cooperative investigation between jurisdictions and agencies solves a 43-year-old homicide and perhaps other cold cases. Why can’t the Michigan State Police, Oakland County and the Detroit office of the FBI work together to bring answers in the OCCK case? Why the reluctance to use “advanced investigative methods”? Or any methods at all??
