Police say the Fort Worth High School student was in a car with her boyfriend before a Valentine’s Day party on the night of February 17, 1974, when a man hit the boy with a gun and that of theirs snatched the girl.
His body was found three days later in a sewer near Lake Benbrook, near the scene of the kidnapping.
McCurley had been a suspect since the crime, but investigators couldn’t really connect him to Walker’s death.
“We took his case as closely as possible with current technology and the evidence we had at the time,” Detective Jeff Bennett said at a news conference Tuesday.
