A man has been charged with murder in connection with the death of a television director — a killing that has been considered a cold case.
“The district attorney’s office in Los Angeles said Tuesday that 53-year-old Edwin Jerry Hiatt is facing one count of murder with a special allegation that he used a deadly weapon to kill director Barry Crane,” the AP reports. The killing took place in 1985.
Officials say Hiatt was linked to the case by DNA evidence, the AP reports.
Crane worked on shows including “The Incredible Hulk” and ″The Six Million Dollar Man.”
Hiatt was arrested in North Carolina and was awaiting extradition to California, the AP notes.
“Investigators believe the 57-year-old Crane was bludgeoned with a large ceramic statue before being found with a telephone cord wrapped around his neck,” the AP adds.
