 The brutal killing of five women in the San Francisco Bay Area beginning in 1976 became known as the “Gypsy Hill Murders.”

Now the FBI has a person of interest in the unsolved murders because of a cigarette butt recovered from an unrelated crime scene, the New York Daily News reports.

Halbower began serving time in prison in Nevada on a rape conviction in 1976.

But new DNA evidence suggests Halbower may have been involved in the murder of Michelle Mitchell, whose death was pinned on Cathy Woods.

Woods faces a new trial because of the latest DNA evidence.

“It’s a set of circumstances that kind of came together perfectly and that’s, a lot of the time, what breaks cases,” Reno Deputy Police Chief Mac Venzon said.
