Default Re: Nigga's Caught By White Man's Voodoo! DNA/Cold Case


Man, 29, is arrested for decade-old cold case murder of woman, 64, beaten and stabbed to death in her Utah bookstore after his Armani belt left at scene provides vital DNA evidence

On Saturday 29-year-old Adam Durborow was arrested for the cold case murder of Sherry Black in Salt Lake City, Utah, who was beaten to death November 2010
Officials have not said what brought them to indicate Durborow as a suspect
The case went cold as there was no robbery or suspected motive in the attack
Investigators retrieved a man's Armani Exchange belt and blood at scene
In 2017 investigators used DNA phenotyping to release three composites of the male suspect using Virginia-based company Parabon-Nanolabs
DNA was collected from Durborow on October 7th and one day later came back a match with the blood found at the Black crime scene
The affidavit also says Durborow confessed to the homicide after he was notified of his Miranda rights

Police arrested 29-year-old Adam Durborow on Saturday in the decade-old cold case murder of Sherry Black in Utah, who was brutally beaten to death in her own business in November 2010 in Salt Lake City, Utah

DNA testing determined the blood came from a male and in 2017 investigators released three snapshot composites of what the suspect could have looked like through the DNA phenotyping process using Virginia-based company Parabon-Nanolabs. Those snapshot composites showed what the man may have looked like at ages 25, 38 and 52


Suspect in Sherry Black killing was convicted of assault, attempted rape as a teenager

SOUTH SALT LAKE — Up until his arrest on Saturday, Adam Antonio Spencer Durborow had a relatively uneventful criminal history as an adult in Utah.

But the man now accused of killing Sherry Black a decade ago when he was 19 had a tumultuous juvenile record that includes convictions for aggravated assault and attempted rape, according to police reports and court documents obtained by KSL through public records requests.

Durborow, 29, remained in the Salt Lake County Jail Wednesday where he is being held for investigation of aggravated murder and aggravated burglary. The Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office began screening Durborow’s case for possible formal charges on Tuesday.

Black, 64, the mother-in-law of former Larry H. Miller Group CEO Greg Miller, was found stabbed to death inside her South Salt Lake bookstore, B&W Billiards and Books, on Nov. 30, 2010. An Armani Exchange men’s belt with a waist measurement of approximately 36-38 inches and a sticker on the back of the buckle with the number “323” was collected at the crime scene, 3466 S. 700 East, as well as blood.

Despite media coverage over the years and efforts to find a match to DNA evidence left at the crime scene, no one was arrested and no suspects ever named until Saturday’s unexpected arrest by Unified police.

In May 2006 in Davis County, Durborow, who was 14, was convicted of attempted rape and aggravated assault in juvenile court, according to court records.

Whether DNA was collected after he was convicted in that case and whether it was put into a database and remained there after Durborow turned 18 was unknown Wednesday. Durborow was 19 at the time of Black’s death.
