Nearly 14 years after Korrina Nicholas’s body was found
half-naked in the bushes near the Douglas Family Preserve, her
alleged killer was finally brought to justice this week thanks to
some high-tech police work. After his DNA was found to be a perfect
match to samples taken from the crime scene in 1992, Gregory
Edwards was arrested by Santa Barbara police in San Quentin State
Prison, where he was serving a nine-month sentence for a
theft-related charge. A longtime Santa Cruz resident, 43-year-old
Edwards was apparently working as a tree trimmer in Santa Barbara
around the time of Nicholas’s murder and, according to authorities,
has made “incriminating statements” about his role in the crime
since his arrest.
