Cold Cases: 3 killings in forest near Flagstaff get new look

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The killings of three people shot at a campsite in the forest west of Flagstaff remain unsolved 14 years later, but Coconino County sheriff's investigators haven't forgotten.

Several people were interviewed soon after the shooting deaths of Richard Barnes, Lynn Patrick and Michael Alexander, but no solid suspect information developed at the time.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that fingerprint and DNA evidence from the October 1999 killings are being analyzed and witnesses are being re-interviewed.

Cold-case unit investigator Chuck Jones says he has an idea of what may have happened but that he's got to let the evidence lead him.

Jones says the case still will be difficult to prove in court even if suspect information is developed.
