CRYSTAL BEACH — Investigators say they are close to solving the cold case killing of Bridgette Gearen, a 28-year-old Orange County woman who was sexually assaulted, strangled and beaten to death before her body was found near a Crystal Beach shoreline on July 15, 2007.

Lt. Tommy Hansen, who works as a cold case homicide investigator for the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, said detectives have identified three people suspected of being involved in Gearen’s death. Investigators hope to present the capital murder case to the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office within the next 30 days.
