Cold Case Investigations Series To Premiere For Local Unsolved Cases
While many folks have been bingeing cool movies and series on all streaming platforms, I'm all about Unsolved Mysteries, Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel and Night Stalker The Hunt for a Serial Killer. What can I say? One of my favorite past times is all things true crime.
I even listen to true crime podcasts on my daily commute. So when I saw a friend of B93's, Sgt. Oscar Villarreal, Public Information Officer for DPS on our news partner NewsWest 9 lastnight talking about local unsolved cases, it was over!
Check this out, our local police and sheriff's offices, have teamed up with DPS to try to solve some local, cold cases. A new series called Cold Case Investigations of the Texas Rangers, premieres today on DPS's YouTube channel and Facebook page. The purpose of this new series is to hopefully help solve some cases that have 'gone cold' here in West Texas. Some even as old as the 1960's will be featured on the series.
This 'video series' is intended to appeal to the public in hopes of anyone who may information on any of the cases that will be featured monthly, to come forward with any information they have.
If there is one thing I have learned over my years of obsession with crime documentaries, it is that there is no such thing as an 'expiration date' for cold cases. I have seen many an episode of a show where 20 years later, because of new leads in a case or details that someone comes forward with that they had no idea would be helpful or relevant can be crucial to solving a years old murder or assault case.
That is what this local, monthly series is intended to do. It will be interactive for all who watch, with according to Sgt. Villarreal, 'clear directions at the end of each episode for the public to submit information.'
