In this weeks’s edition of Open Mike, Yakima Herald-Republic courts and crime reporter Chris Bristol discusses the history of the 1997 unsolved murder of Selah resident Carolyn Clift and how developments in recent years led to the arrests of two suspects.
Clift, 56, was stabbed to death in her Selah apartment the night of Aug. 28, 1997, but more than a decade passed before suspects were charged in connection to the killing. On Monday, one of those suspects was found guilty thanks to DNA technology and a witness who came forward after Bristol wrote about the case on its 10-year anniversary in 2007.
During each Open Mike segment, Faulk will speak with a Herald-Republic staff member to gain his or her perspective on a particular newsworthy event or an aspect of the newsroom operation. Each segment will be available by noon Wednesday at YakimaHerald.com.
Viewers can contact Faulk directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if they have feedback or suggestions for a show topic.
