A suspect confessed to a 32-year-old cold case murder and turned himself in because he felt he had to “right the wrong that he had done.”
Shortly after Adams made his confession, police arrested Adams and charged him with one count each of first-degree murder and robbery.
Police found Haines strangled to death in his hotel room 32 years ago.
They suspected Haines had been ambushed and robbed, but authorities did not have any leads in the case and it went cold.
Adams told officers that while he was living at the shelter, he found himself in need of cash and knew Haines stockpiled large amounts of it.
