LAKE HAVASU CITY, AZ — Police have arrested a 60-year-old man in connection to a Lake Havasu cold case murder that happened in 2005. 

Barbara Kalow was 45 years old when she was killed in a motel room along London Bridge Road 17 years ago this month. 

The case remained unsolved until Lake Havasu City Police Criminal Investigations Unit and Cold Case Squad started to re-investigate the case full-time in 2018. 

Through the investigation, DNA results led officials to Stacy Childs, who was living in Santa Cruz, California.
