Las Vegas metro police searching for sexual assault victims of suspect nabbed in cold case

A few weeks after announcing an arrest in a 42-year-old cold case, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are looking for more people who could have been victimized by the suspect.

On Oct. 31, the agency announced Paul Nuttall, 64, was arrested for the murder of 25-year-old Sandra DiFelice on Dec. 26, 1980. 

DiFelice was sexually assaulted before she was killed at her home.

Las Vegas metro police said there is reason to believe Nuttall may have sexually assaulted more people throughout the years and potential victims are being asked to come forward.
