DCI: 1984 Triple Homicide Linked to Man Executed for Separate Murder

Investigators have linked a 1984 triple homicide in southeastern Iowa to a man who was later executed for the murder of a 12-year-old girl. The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation announced Friday that new DNA evidence implicates Andrew Six in the bludgeoning deaths of 20-year-old Justin Hook Jr., his fiancee, 19-year-old Tina Lade, and Hook's mother, 41-year-old Sara Link. Missouri authorities executed Six by lethal injection in 1997 for the 1987 kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old Kathy Allen. Officials say Six was always a suspect in the earlier triple homicide but investigators did not have enough evidence to charge him.
