Details released leading to an arrest for a 2002 cold case

Nearly two decades ago 17-year-old stacy degrandchamp died after a fight with a 16- year-old girl.

No one was ever charged.

Until now ... when police arrested the now 33-year-old woman in wisconsin.

Fox 55's jentill neal has more on what lead to that arrest.

It was a cold case older than its victim.

Stacy degrandchamp was just 17 years old when she was stabbed to death in fort wayne in august of 2002.

Now ... 18 years later ... police have arrested and charged 33-year-old holly boisvert with murder in her death.

> 06:56:13-06:56:20"i think for the family, this is a relief to finally get an arrest because i don't think they anticipated this would happen."

A probable cause affidavit released this week says the girls were both teens -- and even friends -- before it happened.

But on august 15th the two were mad at one another.

It says boisvert followed degrandchamp into a backyard and they yelled until they fell to the ground while kicking and pulling hair.when degrandchamp got up she was bleeding.

But the affidavit says no one who was there that night ever saw a knife.

Boisvert reportedly told police she must have landed on something.

The case grew cold.

Then the justice advocacy non profit java, encouraged the family to keep pressing for answers.>06:57:59-06:58:16 "once we did it on our public access channel for java, we were able to share that link and from what i think tips may have been called in from us sharing that.

I'm not sure if they were called in our put in through social media, but there were people in the community that commented and knew about the case."police continued the investigation which led them to boisvert ... now living in wisconsin.

The affidavit says boisvert gave investigators the knife used to kill degrandchamps.they say she also told them quote - i think i killed my best friend ... and that it wouldn't have happened had she walked away.

Davis says having a new set of eyes on the case helped.

07:00:20-07:00:30"sometimes detectives are working on things that you don't know that they are, and when we brought this case to brian a year ago, i don't think he stopped workin on it since then."

That was our jentill neal reporting.holly boisvert is being held at the fond du lak county jail on a charge of murder while awaiting extradition back
