DNA Results In Murder Count For 1992 Stabbing Of St. Paulís Annette Seymour
December 11, 2019 at 1:01 pm

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ó A Minneapolis man has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the 1992 stabbing of a St. Paul woman whose partially clothed body was found near an old entrance to a streetcar tunnel, prosecutors said Wednesday.

John Robert Capers, 65, is scheduled to make his first court appearance on Thursday.



Heís charged in the death of 39-year-old Annette Seymour. A citizen discovered Seymourís body on July 14, 1992 near the entrance to the old Selby Avenue streetcar tunnel below the St. Paul Cathedral.

She was clothed in only a T-shirt, and had 11 stab wounds to her neck, chest, back and arms. An autopsy showed she died of blood loss from her wounds.



The case went unsolved for years. According to the criminal complaint, in 2009, the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension tested some evidence in the case and found that DNA from a semen stain matched Capers.

Further testing in 2011 confirmed the match, the complaint said.

It was not immediately clear if Capers has an attorney to comment on his behalf. When authorities interviewed Capers in 2011, they showed him a picture of Seymour. He denied knowing her, meeting her or having anything to do with her death, the complaint said.
