Police in Galveston County believe that a 30-year-old cold case is finally coming to an end.
Detectives had always been suspicious of Clyde Hendrick, 59. He is now charged with murder because of recent forensic findings.
The victim, Elena Rae Beasom, went missing in July 1984. She was last seen at a club in League City. Her friend thought it was odd that her car was still in the parking lot a day after.
Police arrested Hendrick in San Leon after Beasom’s remains were found near a road in Galveston County. An autopsy revealed that she was bludgeoned to death. Hendrick had admitted that he swam with her in a League City pond after they met. This confession makes him the main suspect.
He is being held on $150,000 bond.
