MESA, Ariz. -- Mesa police say they have solved a murder that happened more than 30 years ago.

Using DNA testing, detectives connected suspect Angel Bello to the death of 14-year-old Tina Reed.

Reed's body was found in a construction site in January 1980.

Bello, also known as the "real estate rapist," is already serving time for prison for crimes committed between 1986 and 1987. Mesa police chief Frank Milstead said he was eligible for parole or probation in another 18 months.

Bello, who is now in his 40s, was 14 years old when police say he murdered Reed.
