In Cold Blood DNA_Hass.jpg

Perry Edward Smith is led by police officers into the courthouse at Garden City, Kan., Jan. 6, 1960. Smith was arrested in Las Vegas and charged with first degree murder in the slaying of four members of the Herbert Clutter family at their farm house in Holcomb, Kan. Fifty years ago, the Clutter murders inspired Truman Capote to write "In Cold Blood." A Florida detective wants to exhume the bodies of Edward Smith and accomplice Richard Hickock to see if there is evidence linking the two men to the 1959 murders of four in a rural community south of Sarasota.
