After moving to Redding from Texas in early 1995 at the age of 17 to live with his aunt and uncle, Watkins had several run-ins with the Redding Police Department for minor offenses, Schueller said.

Watkins moved back to Texas in 1997 and compiled a record of convictions that included sexual assault, burglary, escape and bank robbery, 그는 말했다.

“He has spent a significant portion of his life in prison,” the chief said of Watkins.

Reports at the time of the murder say Munro’s killer slashed her throat. The crime took place on a jogging trail in Redding along the Sacramento River.

에 1997, a convicted rapist falsely confessed to Munro’s murder and there was insufficient physical evidence to tie him to the crime.

Over the years the case went cold.

Munro had four children and one of them thanked all those who help lead police to Watkins, KHSL-TV 신고.
