SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities in New York say they’ve used DNA technology to link the mid-1990s slayings of two prostitutes to a man who committed suicide in prison.

The Schenectady (skeh-NEHK’-ta-dee) County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday that the evidence makes Polish immigrant Stanislaw Maciag (MAY’-see-ag) the prime suspect in the killings of 17-year-old Suzanne Nauman and 37-year-old Phyllis Harvey.

The teen’s naked body was found in a field along a Schenectady golf course in May 1995. Harvey was reported missing a month earlier. Her body was later found on a back porch of a Schenectady home.

Maciag killed himself in Auburn state prison in 1997 after being convicted of unrelated sexual abuse charge.

Police reopened Nauman’s case last year and obtained a search warrant to exhume Maciag’s body after obtaining blood samples from his relatives.
