The family of Melissa Januskevicius has spent four agonizing years looking for the person who killed her. Now, their search may be over.

Over the weekend, police in Johnson City, Tennessee arrested 22-year-old Glenn Isaac Goins for raping and murdering a woman.

Now, authorities are saying he has confessed to the Januskvicius' murder that took place in august 1999.

"Allegedly, he confessed to a murder in Louisville. We immediately sent detectives down to Louisville to question him," said Louisville Metro Police Spokesman, "at this point no charges have been filed against him."

The news of the confession has come as welcome relief to Januskevicius' family, who has been awaiting news of an arrest since her death.

Says Sue Ellen Verendsen, Melissa's grandmother, 'Words can't even describe' how the family is feeling now' and they're all just glad that 'this part of the horror' is now over.
