Investigators were able to develop a male DNA profile from evidence recovered at the scene, but it hasn't matched anyone included in national and global databases, Hampden County District Attorney Anthony Gulluni said at a Monday press conference.

For 25 years Lisa Ziegert's family have sought answers and justice in her murder.

Ziegert had been raped, stabbed and her throat was slit, according to MassLive.

Lisa Ziegert was abducted on April 15, 1992, while working her second job at a card shop in Agawam.

Four days after her disappearance, investigators found Ziegert's body in a wooded area about four miles from where she disappeared. The clerk who arrived at work the next morning found the store open, the lights on and Ziegert's vehicle still in the parking lot.

When police tried to speak to Schara, they learned that he had fled to CT, and had been hospitalized there following a suicide attempt.

Investigators used DNA phenotyping which provides authorities with a detailed report and profile that includes eye color, skin color, hair color, face shape, and information on the ancestry of the person who left the DNA.

Officials announced a match Monday from DNA testing after arresting Schara Saturday on charges of murder, aggravated rape, and kidnapping. The money in the store's register and her purse were undisturbed.

Investigators said a person close to Schara gave them handwritten confession notes he had allegedly written, Fox 25 Boston reported. It was not immediately clear whether Schara has an attorney.

Last year, the district attorney's office released a composite image of the suspect in Ziegert's slaying through a process called DNA phenotyping, which uses genetic material to predict the physical appearance and ancestry of an unknown individual. He also said Schara tried committing suicide before he was arrested Saturday in CT. "... No matter how long it takes, you can always be brought to justice".
