New Milford Township, Susquehanna County - Nearly 30 years after his sister was murdered, a Susquehanna County man is hoping for justice.
It comes after a cold case murder arrest from 1983.
As Eyewitness News first reported Wednesday, John Walker, a police officer, was arrested for shooting and killing his estranged wife Lynda Walker.
While most recently serving in Montrose and Silver Lake Township, court documents also indicate that Walker worked in Clarks Summit as a police officer for two years. Documents reveal he resigned from that department after being caught stealing traffic ticket money.
The victim's brother spoke out about the arrest Thursday.
Lynn Conrad was living in Florida when his sister died but is now back living in Susquehanna County.
"I thought, about time, you know? It has been a long time and I just never expected it to come to this so it's really nice," Lynn Conrad said.
Just 24 hours after learning of the arrest, Lynn Conrad was relieved.
"It feels like justice to me. It maybe a long time and he's had a good life in between but I'm glad that something is happening now."
Investigators originally believed the story John Walker told them in 1983. He claimed he came home and she was in bed with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The death was originally classified as a suicide.
Lynda Walker's family never bought it.
"I never did. My sister was a happy go-lucky person, a Christian girl and it was one of the last things in the world she'd ever do," Conrad said.
Lynn Conrad shared pictures of the pair when they were young. He says he remembers his sister's laugh and the pillow fights they used to have.
He also remembers getting weird feelings about her husband, the man now accused of murder.
"When I met John the first time I had a negative feeling about him and I've only had that with a couple people in my life," Conrad said.
An arrest was made only after Lynda Walker's body was exhumed from a cemetery in West Lenox and forensic science helped crack the case.
For Lynda Walker's family, they're hoping the truth comes out.
"I think she's looking down now and she's probably more at rest," Conrad said.
John Walker remains locked-up without bail in Susquehanna County.
