Dunn County Cold Case Solved with DNA Evidence

DNA evidence has led to three arrests in a 2008 armed robbery cold case in Dunn County.

The Dunn County Sheriff's Office says Christina Dixon had been considered a possible suspect in the 2008 armed robbery of Torches Valley Bar in Lucas Township, but denied involvement in the crime.

Some five years later, confronted with the Wisconsin Crime Lab's finding that evidence from the case matched her D-N-A profile, Dixon confessed. She also named and described two of her collaborators -- those two were arrested and released on cash bond. Christina Dixon has been jailed on unrelated charges.

Dunn County Sheriff Dennis Smith says the case has been sent to the District Attorney's Office for formal charges.
