TPF Funds Grant to Assist in Closing a 47-Year-Old Cold Case

On Wednesday, September 11th the Torrance Police Department held a press conference to announce that they have identified the suspect in the murder of Terri Lynn Hollis, which took place on November 23rd, 1972. A Torrance Police Foundation grant enabled the Department to send DNA evidence from this case to a specialized facility for analysis which identified Hollis’ murderer as Jake Edward Brown, who died in 2003.

The closing of this 47-year-old case will never bring back Terri Lynn, but hopefully it was able to bring resolution and closure to her surviving family members. The Torrance Police Foundation was proud to have been able to assist in the solving of this case.
