Once charged 1985 Swanton murder suspect released

Lori Ann Hill

The man suspected in the 1985 murder of a Swanton teen is a free man, for now.

Walter Zimbeck, 42, was arrested last year for the murder of then 14-year-old Lori Ann Hill.

Fulton County Judge James Barber dismissed the murder charges against Zimbeck last Friday after citing no physical evidence linking the suspect to the crime.

Zimbeck has been released. However, the Fulton County prosecutor TMs office has filed an appeal.
