A former Nevada deputy attorney general who was tied to the infamous Mustang Ranch brothel has been arrested in the brutal murder of a teenage girl 50 years ago in Hawaii.
Tudor Chirila Jr., 77, was arrested in Reno and has been charged with second-degree murder after DNA evidence linked him to the fatal stabbing of 19-year-old Nancy Anderson in 1972.
Anderson — who had moved to the island state after graduating high school in Michigan a year earlier — was stabbed more than 60 times inside her Waikiki apartment on Jan. 7, 1972, police said.
Local police never gave up on finding her killer — even a half-century later.
Investigators reopened the cold case multiple times and investigated several suspects over the years. They questioned door-to-door knife salesmen who knocked on Anderson’s door just hours before her killing as well as her former boyfriends and the property manager of her apartment building.
