Arrest made in 1986 death of state police commander's sister

Police arrested 61-year-old Michael Hand at his home in Troutman, North Carolina on Friday.

Reportedly, Gilpin left the party with her friends, who went to their houses. Her body was found on October 22, 1986 and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled that her cause of death was a massive skull fracture. Gilpin stopped on the way to purchase cigarettes, a lady even offered her a ride, but Gilpin declined the offer by saying that she was going to walk. Her skull had been broken. Gilpin's shoes and trousers were not there and her mother was able to identify her with the help of her jewelry.

They lived in the Rocky Nook area of Kingston.

Kerry, who was 16 at the time of Tracy's death, told the Boston Globe a year ago she made a decision to go into law enforcement because of her sister's unsolved murder.

The case left a 'hole in the heart of her entire family, ' the Massachusetts Police Department said previous year.

"Our office will be seeking to have Hand brought back to MA from North Carolina through the initiation of rendition proceedings", Cruz said. She has said she chose to work in law enforcement after her sister was killed, according to news reports in MA.

Authorities have begun rendition proceedings to bring him back to Massachusetts to be prosecuted for Gilpin's murder, according to the Massachusetts State Police.

'For the past three decades, we have remained hopeful that Tracy's murderer would be identified, ' the statement read.

Hand will be transported to MA where he will be charged with with murder in the death of Gilpin, officials say. On Sunday she issued a statement on behalf of her family thanking investigators who tirelessly worked the investigation and members of the public who have provided information.

It was not immediately clear if Hand has a lawyer. That reward was later raised to $25,000, according to The Boston Globe. Hand is scheduled to appear in court Monday to determine extradition.
