BOSTON (KNOE 8 News/AP) - It's an infamous case that has never been solved. Now, authorities in Boston say they've linked DNA from the Boston Strangler's last known victim in 1964 to Albert DeSalvo, the man who at one time claimed to be the strangler.

Police obtained DNA by secretly following DeSalvo's nephew, who had tossed out a water bottle. Now authorities plan to exhume DeSalvo's body in Peabody, Mass.

Investigators say the strangler's 10 other victims have not been linked to the DNA.
