her face. I had nothing to do with it."
But according to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, Meyer came up as a match when the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation Laboratory compared the DNA on her clothing, with that from convicted offenders.
An additional sample was taken and it confirmed that Meyer, 70, was the contributor of semen found on Adams' body, investigators have claimed.
Despite his frail appearance, Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said that Meyer was released from prison months before Adams was killed.
He had killed a man with a hammer in 1963 and served 10 years for the crime.
After being released he moved to the street where Adams lived, just months before her murder.
Then in 1976 he was convicted of kidnapping and raping a woman, a crime which he served 25-years for, before he was released in 2001.
The date for Meyer’s trial was not immediately scheduled.
