A lab has matched DNA recovered from the body of Mary Sullivan almost 50 years ago with that of her suspected killer, confessed "Boston Strangler" Albert DeSalvo, officials said today.

Massachusetts officials say it's the first time that law enforcement has been able to confirm DeSalvo's culpability in any homicide.

DeSalvo had confessed to Sullivan's killing and about a dozen other murders, but he later recanted. He was stabbed to death in 1973 while serving a life prison term for unrelated rapes.
