Additional photo

Deanna was identified after her aunt and uncle submitted their suspicions that the unidentified victim was their estranged niece. DNA testing confirmed that the victim was Deanna.

Deanna had been in a romantic relationship with William Ross Knight, who was infamous around the state for armed robberies. He died in 2005 due to liver problems.

Knight was linked to the scene in 2011 after his DNA was discovered on evidence from the scene, which has led authorities to conclude that he was, indeed, Deanna's killer.
