STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Starkville police have released a computer-generated composite image of a suspect in a 23-year-old unsolved murder in the city.

Detective Bill Lott says the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children assisted them in producing the photo that has been age enhanced to show what the person may look like today.

Lott tells WTVA.com Betty Jones and Katherine Crigler were attacked inside their home on Lee Street, now called Martin Luther King Street, on September 3, 1990.

Jones died instantly, but Crigler died a month later of injuries suffered when she was assaulted and raped.

Detectives say the person took between $20 to $30 during the breakin.

DNA collected from a rape kit has been analyzed and several suspects have been interviewed in connection with the case.

The DNA has been entered into the national CODIS DNA database.

Lott says Interpol has agreed to run the DNA in their database and the G8 Summit countries are also working with Starkville police.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the Starkville Police Department.
