Arrest Made In Cold Case Murder
This is a joint press release from Transylvania County Sheriff David Mahoney, Brevard Police Chief Phil Harris and District Attorney Greg Newman:
"An arrest has been made in the case of Edna Eloise Glaze. Edna Glaze was reported missing on March 19, 1996. She was last seen near the Brevard Music Center. Investigators from the Transylvania County Sheriffs Office and the Brevard Police Department, along with numerous volunteers conducted an exhaustive search, but Ms. Glaze was not located. Over the next few weeks and months, the case grew cold.
Several years later, investigators received information that breathed new life into the case. We have never forgotten about Ms. Glaze, said Sheriff David Mahoney, everyone involved in this case has been committed to seeing it through.
Michael Owen, 63, of Brevard, was arrested today. Owen has been indicted by a Transylvania County Grand Jury and charged with murder. He is being held in the Transylvania County Detention Facility under no bond.
No other details of the investigation will be released to protect the integrity of the case and to ensure a fair trial to Mr. Owen."
