BROCKTON, Mass. (WLNE) — An arrest has been made in a decades-old Massachusetts cold case murder involving the State Police Colonel’s sister.
Police arrested 61-year-old Michael Hand at his home in Troutman, North Carolina on Friday.
Once Hand is extradited to Massachusetts, he will be charged with the murder of 15-year-old Tracy Gilpin, whose body was found at Myles Standish Park in Plymouth on October 22, 1986.
The Medical Examiner ruled she died from a massive skull fracture and the manner of her death was ruled to be a homicide.
Hand will be arraigned at the Plymouth District Court.
