World War One death

Edmund Schreiber won a Purple Heart medal in World War One while fighting in France for the American Expeditionary Force, only to be strangled at his home in Buffalo in New York State in 1983, when aged 92. Schreiber was hit by machine gun fire in both thighs in 1918.

And now, almost 35 years later, Saundra Adams, who was 17 at the time of the murder, has confessed to the crime. She was linked to the killing by DNA evidence. She faces a possible 25 year sentence.
