Nine years to the day after the body of Krystal Connors was discovered in her burning apartment, police have arrested her former neighbor and charged him with her murder.
Victor J. Ferron, 37, of London, Ont., was arrested Sunday by the Major Crime Unit of Niagara Regional Police.
On Dec, 19, 1990, the body of Connors, 28, was discovered in her burning apartment on St. Louis Avenue. She had been strangled and her apartment set on fire, police said.
Ferron lived across the hall from the woman until mid-1990.
Police credited information received from the public and advances in DNA technology with the arrest.
