INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (KCRG) - Law enforcement officials in Arizona are coordinating with officials in Buchanan County to help solve a cold case murder from 26 years ago.

The Coconino County, Arizona, Sheriff’s Office said that it was seeking information about the death of Robert Bresson. Deputies said that his body was discovered on October 5, 1995, buried in a rural area along Forest Service Road 418 northeast of Flagstaff, Ariz.
