(FRANKLIN CO.) - Investigators have pulled out and dusted off a 32-year-old murder case out of southeast Indiana.

State police said advances in forensic technology and other developments led to authorities re-opening the investigation.

Indiana State Police (ISP) said Monday the murder investigation in the death of Donald Elmo Quinlan, 65, was put back in the spotlight.

Quinlan was found dead Oct. 2, 1981, at his home near the Whitewater River in Cedar Grove, Ind.

Investigators said progress in forensics and new witness information both led to ISP re-opening the case.

Anyone with information on the investigation is urged to get in touch with ISP's Versailles District at 812-689-5000 or 800-566-6704.
