BAY VILLAGE, Ohio - Local police have named a Parma Heights man convicted of molesting Detroit-area boys a person of interest in one of northeast Ohio's biggest unsolved homicide cases.
Police are testing the DNA of 66-year-old Ted Lamborgine to see if there's any connection to the 1989 kidnapping and slaying of 11-year-old Amy Mihaljevic, reported NewsChannel5.
Mihaljevic disappeared in October 1989 from the Bay Square shopping plaza, and what happened to her still haunts many of the shop owners there, many who were in business the day she disappeared.
Lamborgine was arrested by Parma Heights police last year in connection with the Detroit-area molestations.
Lamgorgine lived in Olmsted Falls when Mihaljevic was kidnapped and killed.
Parma Heights police Detective Steve Scharschmidt said police and the FBI are checking Lamborgine's DNA with the crime scene but doesn't expect any link to the Mihaljevic case.
"Certainly Lamborgine's DNA will be compared but it's a loose connection, nothing strong at this time," he said.
Bay Village police said they check out a possible connection with any child sex offender but don't expect any specific link with Lamborgine.
