CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Police say new evidence came in last year, and now they have two cold case detectives working on a nearly 20 year old murder case.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said Wednesday it has been actively investigating the murder of 31-year-old Kim Thomas who was killed on July 27, 1990. She was found murdered in her Southeast Charlotte home.
Police say new evidence came in in 2008 that prompted assigning the detectives to the case.
Thomas was a leader in the Charlotte chapter of NOW, a former financial news network anchor, and an author of book about pregnancy.
