Andrea Parson disappeared walking home in 1993, but her body was never found — and no one was ever charged. 20 years later, police have finally nabbed her suspected killer.

Andrea Parson, 10, was walking home from a local candy store in Florida in July, 1993 when she disappeared — and no trace of her whereabouts were ever discovered. Finally, nearly 20 years later, police have made an arrest.

Duane Price, 42, was arrested on Nov. 28, after police said they have new evidence to connect him to Andrea’s disappearance.

Duane is a convicted felon with a long rap sheet, and was Andrea’s neighbor in the Sutart, Fla. trailer park where she lived with her mom and her mom’s boyfriend.

“We were aware of him from the beginning of the investigation,” Sheriff Robert Crowder said. “He was one of a number of names we were following. He was one of our people of interest.”

Police have not revealed what the new evidence is, but they insist it’s enough to convict Duane.
