Man arrested in slayings of two Santa Monica women
Edric Dashell Gross, 36, was arrested Wednesday at Pan Pacific Park in Los Angeles after a five-year cold-case investigation.
He is accused of killing of Jacqueline Lee Ovsak, 42, and Dana Caper, 41. Ovsak was found in 2001 in an abandoned building on 7th Street. Caper was found in Palisades Park in 2002.
The original cases went cold. But detectives picked up the case several years later.
Officials said DNA evidence was key in building the case against Gross.
