HEALDSBURG, Calif. (AP) - Police in a Northern California town have exhumed the body of a woman found decades ago to see if there's a connection to serial killing suspect Joseph Naso.

Healdsburg Police Chief Kevin Burke told The Associated Press the department exhumed the unidentified woman's body to conduct a new autopsy and collect DNA.

Interest in the old case was sparked after investigators found a list describing 10 women in the Nevada home of Naso, who's charged with killing four women in the 1970s and 1990s. One of the entries on the list said "Girl near Healdsburg."

The body was found in Foss Creek in 1983.

At the time, it was too decomposed for investigators to work with. But new technology might help yield clues, and DNA could lead to family members.
