  • Man to face charges in Agawam educator's 1992 rape, murder

During a press conference Monday, the Hampden County District Attorney said DNA testing and analysis confirmed Schara was their suspect.

An arrest has been made in the 25-year-old unsolved murder case of a middle school teacher's aide.

"Through the determined and skilled work of many investigators, we have arrested the person responsible for the heinous acts committed against Lisa and the 25-year-long search for answer is over", Gulluni said. She had been stabbed and raped.

Lisa Ziegert was working her night job at a card and gift shop when she vanished on April 15, 1992.

Schara was arraigned as a fugitive of justice in a CT courtroom on Monday. The clerk who arrived at work the next morning found the store open, the lights on and Ziegert's auto still in the parking lot.

The DNA sample had been run against databases in the past, and investigators made a decision to take another look at prior persons of interest who did not appear in existing DNA databases.


Her body was found in the woods on Easter Sunday, about four miles from the store.

Schara, 48, appeared in a Vernon, Connecticut courtroom Monday, where he is charged with murder, aggravated rape and kidnapping in the killing of 24-year-old Lisa Ziegert.

Last year, Gulluni released a computer-generated rendering of a suspect using new technology that analyzed DNA found at the crime scene to predict the suspect's physical characteristics.

It was not immediately clear why was Schara was in the hospital.

"There's a significant amount of resources the DA provided to the case that. led to this new development", Leydon said, adding that Gulluni has been in touch with Ziegert's family. But the next day, a person close to Schara contacted investigators and provided them with handwritten documents, purportedly written by Schara, in which Schara allegedly admitted to abducting, raping and murdering Ziegert. Police then learned he had fled to CT, where they found him after he attempted suicide, Gulluni said.
