"DNA testing and analysis has confirmed the identity of Lisa's killer", the district attorney said.

She was also a teacher's assistant in Agawam Middle School.

'They never, ever gave up on Lisa, and that is what we're focused on'.

Ziegart's mother is grateful that police remained determined to solve this case.

Police gathered evidence from the crime scene at the time of the murder but they were unable to officially identify a suspect until now, reports said. Her throat had been cut and she had multiple stab wounds.

A man charged with raping and killing a MA teacher's aide after abducting her from her night job at a card shop 25 years ago was ordered held without bail Tuesday.

Four days after her disappearance, investigators found Ziegert's body in a wooded area about four miles from where she disappeared.

With the help of the rendering, detectives who were giving the case a fresh look honed in on a small group of people of interest who had surfaced in the investigation over the years, but for whom investigators did not have DNA samples. He was released from the medical facility Monday and is now in the custody of the Connecticut State Police on a fugitive from justice charge as he awaits extradition to MA. She was reported missing the next day, when the day clerk arrived to find the store open and the lights still on.

Gulluni said that on Thursday, a friend of the suspect's came forward and turned in what appeared to be handwritten documents by Schara admitting to the 1992 rape and murder.

Police made headway in the case after distributing a computer-generated picture previous year, using DNA found at the scene to estimate what a possible suspect would look like, reports said.

It was not immediately clear why was Schara was in the hospital.

Last year, Gulluni said investigators found a single source male DNA from an unknown individual that was developed from various items seized from Zeigert's body and the crime scene. He also said Schara tried committing suicide before he was arrested Saturday in CT.

"It has always been about justice for Lisa", Dee Zieger said.
