Weld County has arrested a suspect believed to be responsible for one of the oldest cold case murders in the county.

Evelyn Kay Day, 29, left work at Aims Community College on Nov. 6, 1979, around 10 p.m. The next day, two coworkers found her body in her car.

Day had been beaten, sexually assaulted and strangled with a belt from her overcoat.

“For more than 41 years, Kay’s family and friends and the rest of Weld County community have been waiting for the killer to be brought to justice,” said Weld County Sheriff, Steve Reams. “I am pleased to announce we took a significant step in that direction earlier this week.”
