WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas — The Williamson County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday announced a new discovery in the 1979 "orange socks" cold case.
Sheriff Robert Chody said that preliminary forensic evidence testing on DNA found on the victim's socks revealed two or more male contributors.
He said it is unknown how much or if the quantity of the other contributors' DNA is sufficient for further testing, as they are still in the preliminary testing stages.
The sheriff also said the DNA is still being processed to separate the contributors and generate possible profiles.
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
