1978 Denver cold case solved after one day of being on Crime Stoppers

KUSA - One day - it took one day for tipsters to lead Denver Police to a homicide suspect after they released a Crime Stoppers bulletin about a 1978 cold case on Thursday.

Police say that Shawn Winkler was wanted for 2nd-degree murder in connection to a homicide from 39 years ago in Denver. The wanted poster suggested he might be homeless and frequents the area of downtown Denver and SoBo.

The poster offered a $2,000 reward for any information that led to Winkler's arrest. No word on if anyone's claimed the prize.
