Police then re-interviewed witnesses from the time of the slaying. They learned that on the night of the murder, Morlang had returned to the truck yard and that his co-workers could see he was upset, according to recent police reports.

Morlang’s suicide note subsequently provided a DNA sample which proved a match to the DNA found beneath Anderson’s fingernails.
