The I65 killer, sometimes referred to as the Days Inn Killer, was given those names because he targeted victims that worked at hotels along Interstate 65 in Indiana and Kentucky between 1987 and 1989. The cases took many years to be solved and were done so through the use of forensic genetic genealogy.
Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the I65 killer. It wasn't until 2008 that DNA linked the cases together. And it wasn't until 2022 that the police announced they had identified the killer Harry Edward Greenwell. The good news was that the cases had been solved and the killer identified. The bad news was that Greenwell had died nine years earlier so he would never face the justice that he deserved.
