Cold Case May be Solved

ALBANY, Ore. — The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says it’s cracked a more than 25 year old cold case.

Deputies say Dennis Beach (left) is now in jail and charged with aggravated murder. He’s accused of killing 35-year-old Thomas Hyland (right) in 1987. The sheriff’s office didn’t find his body for nearly two years.

Detectives initially pegged Beach as a suspect, he but was only charged last month by the Linn County grand jury.

Beach is currently in a Nevada jail awaiting extradition back to Linn County.
