Suspect identified in cold case from DNA evidence story image

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Kent Metro Cold Case Team has identified a suspect in a 2009 murder case.

26-year-old Teivariol Devonte-Darnell Moore from Saginaw has been charged with second degree murder in 56-year-old William Parnell's death.

On Sept. 9, 2009 Parnell was found dead in his home at 1131 Diamond Ave. NE in Grand Rapids. His hands and feet were bound and he died of blunt force trauma.

DNA evidence at the scene was compared to a number of persons of interest at the time, but one subject refused to provide DNA. Investigators say that there wasn't enough evidence to force him to comply.

In 2013 the cold case team took over the investigation and got enough evidence to get a DNA search warrant for Teivariol Moore. The DNA matched.

Police say that Moore was brought to Grand Rapids, was questioned and confessed to his involvement in the homicide. Moore told investigators that he was visiting Parnell and got in a fight. When he realized that Parnell was dead he tied him up to make it look like a robbery.
