(WTOL)- Ronald Bowman, 72, was arrested Thursday, October 2 for the murder of Eileen Adams, who was 14 at time of her death in 1967. 

Adams was last seen in 1967 getting off school bus after leaving Central Catholic High School. Her body was found six weeks later in rural Monroe County. In 2006, Toledo  Police detectives reopened the murder investigation at the request of the girl's father. Forensic evidence as well as witness statements linked Bowman to the murder.

Bowman was arrested in Cathedral City, CA by investigators of the Riverside County DA's office.

The DNA testing was available for this "cold case" because of a grant provided by the  Department of Justice and administered by the Ohio Attorney General's Office.
