Arrest made in cold case with Gloucester victim

The Associated Press reported last week an arrest in a decades-old cold case involving a Gloucester County victim.
According to the May 7 AP story, 58-year-old Clark Perry Baldwin, a long-haul trucker from Iowa, has been charged with the murder of three women in the early 1990s, victims whose bodies were dumped in Wyoming and Tennessee, including the 1991 killing of 32-year-old Pamela McCall of Gloucester.

McCall was found in the woods off Interstate 65 in Spring Hill, Tennessee, in March 1991. An autopsy determined McCall had neck injuries and died of strangulation, the AP story stated.

DNA recovered from that murder scene as well as two murders in Wyoming allegedly tie Baldwin to the murders, and charges against Baldwin have been filed in both states, the AP report said. In Tennessee, he has been charged with two counts of murder—both McCall and the fetus she was carrying. One of the other victims was also pregnant, the story stated.

Investigators zeroed in on Baldwin after finding DNA in commercial genealogy databases of someone related to the suspect’s profile, court documents say.
