(Newser) – Fingerprints taken from kidnapper dad Clark Rockefeller reveal a connection to a decade-old California murder case, the Boston Globe reports. Prints taken after his arrest Saturday in Baltimore match those on a driver’s license application under another alias—which in turn is on a list of those wanted in connection with the California homicide.

Authorities aren’t saying if they believe Rockefeller is in fact wanted in the crime, though California authorities have joined the investigation. The man has continued to conceal his identity since he was captured, 6 days after taking 7-year-old Reigh Storrow Mills Boss during a supervised visit in Boston. Asked about his parents or place of birth, his response is usually: “I don’t remember.”
