California authorities say DNA has actually helped connect a 52- year-old guy to eight cold cases– the rape and murder of a Fresno female 23 years earlier and the sexual attacks of seven Visalia ladies between 1999 and 2002.
On Wednesday, Visalia police revealed the arrest of Nickey Stane in connection with 4 of the 7 sexual attacks, according to reports. The victims were ladies ages 17 to 47.
On Friday, Fresno police and prosecutors revealed at a news conference that Stane will be charged with the murder of Debbie Dorian, a 22- year-old college student who was found dead in her house by her daddy 23 years back, Fox 26 Fresn o reported.

Dorian’s case was resumed in 2016 when DNA showed that the individual who eliminated her was the same person who sexually attacked the 7 Visalia women, the station reported.
