Long Beach cold case files
Victim Oral Stuart, Jr.
On November 10, 1974, officers from the Long Beach Police Department responded to a large condominium complex in the area of Spring Street near the 605 Freeway, where the nude body of a deceased adult male was found.
In 1989, Long Beach Police Department Homicide detectives began an investigation into the murder of a 15-year-old Wilson High School student who was found deceased in her residence. The case would go unsolved for 22 years until advances in DNA technology and a grant to help solve cold cases gave detectives the resources they needed to identify the suspect, who had since murdered another young female and attempted to murder a third.
