Description

Based on the iconic, Emmy-nominated series on A&E, this show explores some of the most difficult-to-solve murders, which stymied investigators and went cold, sometimes for decades. In fact, one-third of all murders in America remain open. But thanks to dogged investigators and breakthroughs in forensic technology, these cases become part of the rare 1% of cold cases that are ever solved. Cold Case Files is hosted by Paula Barros.

The only reason this case went cold is simple laziness on the part of the prosecutors and the police.

I dont care at all for the female narrators. it should come across as though the narrator is telling a story that they know well rather than reading from a script. and the additional commentary every time there is a sound clip played is absolutely unnecessary. yall need to take several chapters from Bill Curtis's book.

This case renews my personal belief that cases go cold because of police laziness and incompetence. The idea that a violent rapist and suspected murderer was in this girls life or connected to the family and the police were too stupid to draw a straight line shows you just how idiotic your average police officer can be.

There are 120,000 unsolved murders in America. They are cold case files. Only 1% of those are ever solved. You guys definitely didn't cover 1200 cases so why re-tell the same story again? Not for the listener becuase I can just scroll down to listen to it....again. Its for the ad revenue. Crime solved
