DURANGO, Colo. (AP) — Police say DNA evidence from the murder scene of Ski & Bow Rack owner Larry Fisher matches the main suspect, who was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound days after meeting with investigators.
The Durango Herald reported Wednesday that DNA from the March 11 scene matches 29-year-old Michael Moats, who was a regular at the store and matched the description of the person caught on a surveillance camera.
Investigators met with Moats on March 13, at which point he voluntarily provided a DNA sample.
The next day, Moats was found dead near Chama, New Mexico.
