DNA renews 32-year-old homicide probe

A 32-year-old homicide investigation got a boost this month when authorities used DNA to identify the victim.
Armed with the name Howard Hardin, Knox County Sheriff’s Office detectives can resume the probe of a murder that occurred in 1981, according to Officer Amy Dobbs.
Hardin, 30, had been reported missing in 1981 to the Knoxville Police Department by his girlfriend. Hardin lived at an apartment on Linden Avenue and had no arrest history.
