    SOUTH AMBOY, NJ—In 1991, five-year-old Timothy Wiltsey went missing from a carnival, sparking a national search for him until the remains of his body were found in woods near an office complex where his mother once worked.

    Now, on what would have been Timothy's 29th birthday, Wiltsey's mother Michelle Lodzinski was arrested in Florida for the murder, raising questions about the role previous prosecutors played in the case.

    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Steven Parkey Jr. brutally killed Nikki Adams, a 15-year-old New Brunswick resident, in an Edison motel room on October 3, 1990.  But their story did not end there.

    On February 7, after several twists and turns, and more than a decade with no developments in the case, Parkey admitted he committed aggrivated manslaughter, while a jury was deliberating his fate.

    Parkey pleaded guilty to the charges after new DNA analysis introduced in a recent trial linked him to the murder.
