Atlantic’s ‘Lazarus File’ Brings L.A. Cold Case Back From the Dead

That’s one terrific article in the Atlantic magazine’s current edition:

The Lazarus File

In 1986, a young nurse named Sherri Rasmussen was murdered in Los Angeles. Police pinned down no suspects, and the case gradually went cold. It took 23 years—and revolutionary breakthroughs in forensic science —before LAPD detectives could finally assemble the pieces of the puzzle. When they did, they found themselves facing one of the unlikeliest murder suspects in the city’s history.

What follows is a riveting piece of reporting by Los Angeles writer Matthew McGough. Special bonus: video of the police interrogating the unlikeliest murder suspect.

If this story hasn’t been optioned for a movie yet, it will be by . . . now.
