Murder of Righteous Brothers Bill Medley's ex-wife solved after 40 years

The murder of the ex-wife of Righteous Brothers singer Bill Medley has been solved after more than 40 years, thanks to a controversial DNA technique. Karen Klaas, 32, was raped, strangled and left unconscious at her Hermosa Beach home on 30 January 1976, after dropping off her youngest child to school. On Friday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said they solved her murder "through the use of familial DNA, which identified the killer", but no further details were given.
