SEATTLE COLD CASE ARREST WAS IN THE CARDS
Detectives busted Johnson after getting a tip from a convict who read about the case on the card. Schwarz was found shot and strangled on Oct. 22, 1979 and Johnson had been a suspect for many years.
Det. Patrick VanderWeyst said: "After 31 years, we end up finding a person that was an eyewitness to the murder. The witness was basically in fear for her life if she ever came forward with information."
Cops say Johnson is the ex hubby of Schwarz's friend. She had discouraged her friend from reconciling with the accused killer. He freaked.
