CHARDON, Ohio, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- The sheriff in Ohio's Geauga County says the key suspect in a 1980 double homicide is also a person of interest in the 1996 shooting death of a 25-year-old man.
Sheriff Dan McClelland said authorities want to question Edward Wayne Edwards, 76, again regarding the 1997 discovery of Dannie Boy Edwards' body near a home the two shared, The Wisconsin State Journal reported Thursday.
"He's (been) a person of interest since the onset of the case," McClelland said. "He was questioned back then. He was not arrested. He was a person of interest because of the relationship that existed between the two."
Dannie Boy Edwards, 25, legally changed his name from Dannie Law Gloeckner after living with Edward Edwards for an unspecified period of time.
Edward Edwards has already been charged in connection with 1980 killings of teenage sweethearts Tim Hack and Kelly Drew near Fort Atkinson, Wis.
Edwards faces a preliminary hearing in the double homicide case Thursday.
