Pasco Sheriff’s Detectives Crack Cold Case

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested the husband of a woman whose body was found in the Gulf of Mexico in 1982.

The Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday announced the arrest of 59-year-old William Gary Hurst. He was arrested in Dawson Springs, Ky., where he will await extradition to Florida.

Officials say Amy Rose Hunt was 29 when she went missing in August 1982. Her body was not identified until July, when her son alerted officials to information he and his wife found during an Internet search for his mother. The discovery by Jeff Early, and his wife, Julie, of Grand Rapids, Mich., helped the sheriff’s office crack the case.

No further details were immediately available.
