Convicted Cold Case Suspect To Be Sentenced
DNA evidence closes the book on a nearly 20-year-old case that, at one point, had gone cold. Opelousas Police Chief Perry Gallow says District Judge Ellis Daigle will sentence Joseph T. Savoy on Wednesday of aggravated kidnapping. Savoy was identified as a possible suspect in 2008 when he was convicted of a similar crime in Lafayette. The Acadiana Crime Lab confirmed a DNA sampled from Savoy matched evidence from the 1994 crime.
