She had most likely been killed due to a terrible blow to the head that fractured her skull.

We have the latest news on the Tracy Gilpin case, with details on who Mark Hand is, and what alleged connections he may have to Gilpin and the MA area where Gilpin was murdered.

Tracy is the sister of Massachusetts State Police Col. Kerry Gilpin.

Authorities announced Sunday that Michael Hand of Troutman, North Carolina, was arrested there and will face charges in Gilpin's killing. For the past three decades, we have remained hopeful that Tracy's murderer would be identified.

Hand is expected in court in North Carolina on the morning of Monday, March 12 as part of the legal process of transferring him into the care of MA officials.

Tracy Gilpin disappeared in MA on October 1, 1986, and her body was found in Myles Standish State Forest in Plymouth, Mass., 21 days later, MA police said.

State troopers assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office recently traveled to North Carolina to pursue the investigation into the death of Tracy Gilpin.

Authorities said they have started rendition proceedings to bring him back to MA.

Sir Ken Dodd dies aged 90, two days after marriage
Did you meet or work with Dodd? Born the son of a coal merchant in 1927, Dodd began his career as a comedian in 1954. Sir Ken Dodd - master of tickling sticks, Diddy Men and tattifilarious comedy - has died, his publicist has said.

Michael Hand, 61, is pictured in this undated photo.

She went on to talk about how she is not just thinking of getting justice for her family but "all the families who have lost loved ones to violence". Her body was found October 22 in Myles Standish Park in Plymouth.

Gilpin was the sister of Massachusetts' top cop. "We will continue to work tirelessly to find justice for all murder victims", she said.

Hand previously lived in Kingston. A neighbor recalled hearing what sounded like a scream and a vehicle squealing away on the night of Gilpin's disappearance.

Tracy continued her walk alone and stopped into a convenience store.

Around 10:30 p.m., Tracy left the party with two friends.

Tracy asked the woman who threw the party for a ride home, but the woman couldn't leave.

Authorities would later say Tracy had been brutally murdered, the cause of death most likely from a massive blow to the head.
