3.1. Took 33 years for this murder mystery to be solved.

3.2. Frank Wright had already died from alcohol abuse 8 years before the crime got solved. So he did not receive any kind of sentence.

4. My Opinions

4.1. Hair evidence helped solve the crime because James Anagnos found the follicle of the hair which helped then find the DNA. I think it makes for an excellent murder crime investigation for the way that this story played out. James Anagnos and Frank Wright has an argument, and James Anagnos snatched out Frank Wright's hair that had follicles in it to extract DNA, that helped him get evidence of the suspect 33 years later.
