HE strangled the life out of her and then her left her 14-month-old son to wander the dangerous Houston streets alone.
For 21-years the killer of Tammy Lynn Bounds, who was seven-months pregnant with her second child, has been walking around scott free, presumably thinking that he'd got away with the 1990 murder.
But this week, cops finally think they've got their man, after DNA linked them to the cold blooded killer, who throttled the life out of her and then dumped her body in a wooded area near her Houston, home.
A lengthy investigation was conducted into the 18-year-old's death and although Robert Lawrence Wilson came to the attention of investigators at the time because he had once resided at the same apartment complex as Bounds, with little to go on, they were forced to let him go.
But in 2006, The Houston Chronicle reported that Cold Case Detectives Tom Duroy and Terrance Greenwood reopened the murder investigation.
With DNA techniques having come on in leaps and bounds since the original investigation they were able to finally link Wilson to the murder.
Their man was already behind bars in California and is now awaiting extradition to Texas.
Anyone who believes that may have information about this case should contact one of the Cold Case Detectives at 936-760-5876 or Montgomery County Crime Stoppers at 800-392-(STOP) 7867.
