Truck driver linked to Tennessee missing woman case


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- An Illinois truck driver accused of killing at least four women in three states has been linked to a Nashville woman reported missing in June 2007.

Nashville police said Tuesday a sample of Latisha Yvonne Milliken's DNA was matched to blood found in Bruce Mendenhall's truck.

Milliken, last known to be homeless, is still considered a missing person but the investigation continues. Mendenhall is not charged in this case.

Mendenhall, 57, of Albion, Ill., is charged with the June 2007 shooting death of Sara Nicole Hulbert, whose body was found at a truck stop along Interstate 24 in Nashville.

He has since been charged with killing three other women in Lebanon, Tenn.; Indianapolis and Birmingham, Ala.

Mendenhall has been held in Nashville without bond since his arrest in July 2007.
