Child murder suspect from west coast arrested in IL

Authorities said they arrested Robert Washburn, 60, at his home in Eureka, Illinois, on Thursday, a week after they received results of a DNA test linking him to the death of 13-year-old Jennifer Bastian. In May, Washburn called police to say that while jogging in Point Defiance Park, he had seen a man who matched the description of the suspect in Welch's case, Tacoma police Detective Jared Ausserer wrote in a probable-cause statement filed in Pierce County Superior Court this week.

For more than 30 years, people like Perera wondered when police would find the person who killed Jenny. "Then, we never saw her again".

Bastian disappeared whilst riding her motorcycle from Tacoma's Point Defiance Park on the summer evening, along with also her figure has been found in a wooded area off a trail more than two weeks later, on August 28, 1986. Her slaying - and Welch's - remained unsolved.

Investigators found her body in a wooded area close to the park.

Washburn's arrest occurred on the same day police released a press release indicating they had a DNA match on the remains of 10-year-old Lindsey Baum, who disappeared in McCleary, Washington, in 2009, while waking home after visiting a friend.

Welch's killing is still unsolved. She had been strangled, her bike dumped nearby.

Evidence from the scene of Bastian's death was saved, and in recent years a detective sent for testing DNA collected from the bathing suit she was wearing when she died. While authorities initially believed that the 2 cases may possibly be linked, DNA investigation performed in 20-16 revealed otherwise, as stated by the News Tribune paper of Tacoma. He was held at Woodford County Jail and will be extradited to Tacoma, Washington, to be charged in the death of Jennifer Bastian. Several witnesses reported credible sightings of her around the 5-mile drive of Point Defiance Park as late as 6 p.m. that day, police said.

Officials expect him to arrive in Tacoma by Monday. Illinois State Police found 60-year-old Robert D. Washburn in Eureka, which is just outside of Peoria.
