20 Year Old Abduction Case Taken Off The Shelf

An abduction case has resurfaced after more than 20 years of sitting cold.   Ara Denise Johnson was just five years old went she went missing from her Upshur County home near Big Sandy in April 1986.   Now, a man incarcerated in Ohio claims he killed the little girl. David Elliot Penton is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of a nine year old girl. And last year he was convicted of killing three girls in the Dallas area.
