More than four decades after two women along California’s central coast were raped and murdered, officials revealed Wednesday that DNA from an old razor has linked the cold case killings to a man who died of cancer while in prison.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that DNA recovered at the scene of the twin murders in Atascadero matched to DNA from Arthur Rudy Martinez, who died in 2014 at the age of 65 in a prison in Spokane, Washington.

“Our hearts go out to the families of the victims and are hopeful the resolution to these cases brings them some closure,” San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson said in a statement. “With the advancements in DNA technology and having an investigative focus solely on these types of cases, this case proves the value of having this important position.”
