This is the first of what will be many, many posts on the subject of cold case murders, questionable deaths and missing persons in the Ohio Valley. There will be no shortage of fodder to feed the hunger of surviving loved ones searching for justice and some sort of closure; and quench the thirst of curiosity seekers who are enthralled by real life mysteries.
In the coming weeks, many names will be added to the "View Cold Case Files". Entries will include summaries of the cases with information torn from the pages of microfilmed copies of local newspapers. Stories will tell of crime scene findings, along with names and comments from investigators working the cases.
This Blog's mission is to put a face on the victims and give voice to their silenced lips; and to offer hope and ultimately comfort to surviving loved ones and friends. These stories should not be relegated to rolls of film hidden among thousands of others in dusty library drawers.
One truth reigns in all cold cases - somebody out there knows something about this case. Herein lies an opportunity for somebody to come forward with that one slice of information investigators need to complete the puzzle and tranquilize the victims' questionable ability to rest in peace.
