1980 Cold Case Suspect Extradited to Phoenix


Thirty years later, an Albuquerque man wanted in connection to a cold case murder is arrested.

U.S. Marshals arrested 50-year-old Patrick Ryon two weeks ago in New Mexico. He was extradited to Phoenix and is facing felony counts of first degree murder and sexual assault.

Investigators say that Ryon killed 19-year-old Alison Mims in 1980. He was spotted leaving a wedding reception with her.

Her body wasn't found until 7 years later, and wasn't identified until last year.
