MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police have made an arrest in the cold case death of a teenage girl dating to 1982.

The Journal Sentinel reports the suspect, who has not been named, reportedly called WISN-TV on Sunday and said he was present when 13-year-old Carrie Ann Jopek died.

Jopek, a seventh-grader at Kosciuszko Middle School, disappeared on March 16, 1982. Her remains were found more than a year later when a contractor was working on a back porch at the house across the street from the girl’s house.

Milwaukee Police Sgt. Tim Gauerke confirmed to The Associated Press Tuesday that an arrest was made in Jopek’s death, and that police continue to investigate. No details were released.

Jopek’s mother, Carolyn Tousignant, told reporters at the time her daughter had been suspended from school for walking the halls and then went missing.
