An Iowa man has been arrested in connection with the murders of two women in Wyoming in the 1990s.

On Wednesday, agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and investigators with the 22nd Judicial District Attorney’s Office in Tennessee arrested Clark Perry Baldwin, 59, of Waterloo, Iowa.

Baldwin has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the 1991 deaths of a woman and her unborn child in Tennessee. He is to be charged in Wyoming with first-degree murder for the “I-90 Jane Doe” and “Bitter Creek Betty” killings.

In March 1992, a woman was found dead near the Bitter Creek turnout in Sweetwater County. The victim was never identified, becoming known as “Bitter Creek Betty.”

One month later, a woman’s body was found in Sheridan County by Wyoming Department of Transportation employees. The victim became known as “I-90 Jane Doe.”

Both murder cases were considered to be “cold,” but due to advances in technology, investigators were able to link Baldwin to the murders, according to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.
