Sarasota man arrested for 1984 rape, murder

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Sarasota man in connection with a rape and murder committed 25 years ago.

Police used DNA evidence to link 50-year-old James Clark to the 1984 stabbing death of Janet Sass. She called 911 but died before emergency responders could reach her.

Clark had been a top suspect because he worked at a car
dealership across the street from Sass' home.
