New revelations have come to light in the case of a Chillicothe farm wife’s 1990 murder.

Newly released investigative records show that a former suspect, Brandon Hagan, who has not been charged, told a California commodities investor that he once got away with murder and was not afraid to do it again.

Hagan was initially suspected in the shooting death of Cathy Robertson but insisted he was elsewhere at the time of the murder.

The new records are from Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox who began his investigation after a 2009 AP investigative report raised questions about the conviction of Mark Woodworth.

Cox reenforced that Woodworth is still charged with Robertson’s death, and said “This is not game-changing information.”

Woodworth was released from prison in January after the Missouri Supreme Court vacated the conviction. The state of Missouri is attempting to retry Woodworth a third time.
