Two Colorado Springs cold case homicides solved, one dating back to 1972

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado Springs Police Department says two cold case homicides have been solved. 

The older of the two cases dates back to September 19, 1972 when a 19-year-old woman was stabbed to death.

Police say that DNA testing identified Deborah Lynn May's killer as Craig Brame, who died in 2004. Brame was stationed at Fort Carson with May's boyfriend at the time of her murder.

The second solved case is from March 8, 2010. The victim, Yong Glen, 56, was shot to death in her tailoring shop in the 3800 block of Maizeland Road.

Glen's vehicle was stolen after her murder. Police say that in March of this year, someone tried to register the stolen vehicle in California. The driver of the vehicle in California was identified as Robert Quillen. 

Police say Quillen committed suicide just before the vehicle surfaced. A forensic analysis determined that the gun Quillen used to commit suicide was also the gun used in Glen's murder. Evidence found in the vehicle also linked Quillen to the crime.

Anyone with additional information about either of these cases is asked to call 719-444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP (7867).
