Sipos was expected to receive seven years of life in prison as that was the maximum sentence he could have received at the time of the November 20, 1969 murders.

The case remained unsolved until 2020, when investigators used DNA left at the scene to check genetic genealogy, which did not exist when Sipos murdered Scott. Authorities traced him to his home in Pennsylvania.

“The DNA is there, and it doesn’t lie,” Scott’s young daughter Donna Wyble told KSUI.
