Laura Campbell describes her grandmother Edna Reeves as the "perfect grandmother."

Campbell says, "She would stay up and do puzzles with me until midnight, she would crank the go-cart when we couldn't crank it, she was 74 years old and she could crank the go-carts and she always had the pudding pops that we loved"

But now all family members have are memories.

According to investigators, a man came into Reeves home on Aug. 14 1993 and brutally raped, strangled, then murdered her.

Now, a positive DNA test from an inmate with priors, has been matched by the state department of forensic sciences

However, investigators are saying who he is, or where he is, but one thing is for sure they know they have their man.

District attorney Gary McAliley says it’s possible the case will go before a grand jury.

If it does the suspects identification will then be released The suspect was released from jail 59 days before miss reeves murder.

And even though we don't know who he is, or if he is currently being held in prison, WTVY exclusively learned he has 14 convictions.

A few include 1st degree robbery, 2 attempted murders, and burglary.
