S.D. Man Arrested in Slaying of Mother
A San Diego man has been arrested on suspicion of killing his mother nine years ago.
Timothy Michael McClure, 31, was arrested for the slaying of Terri McClure, who was found shot to death in her car in a casino parking lot nine years ago.
The arrest followed a probe into clues provided after the case was aired last year on the “Unsolved Mysteries” television show.
Carson City Sheriff Paul McGrath said Thursday that the new information supported investigators’ original theory that McClure, a student, was “very much involved in the slaying of his mother.”
Ironically, McClure had contacted the television show in the hope that by telling his story a viewer could back up his alibi, host Robert Stack said when the show was aired.
