Cold Case Chronicles

Far removed from the Free Love and Peace of the late 1960s, the late 19970s were pay to play.  In 1978 a body was found in rural Iowa.  She would be Jane Doe for three decades.  This is Unidentified Female – The Story or Wilma June Nissen.

Cold Case Chronicles

Sometimes when a case is researched, very little information is found. In the case of 18-year-old Calab Luckett who was found shot in an abandoned apartment, is no different. While the crew found little information about his killer, they found a lot of information about a systemic problem of violence among youth.

Cold Case Chronicles

The 1988 Murder of Mary Plummer is nothing short of a travesty. Taken before her time, her family still suffers. In cold cases like these, that are still entirely solvable, justice is still to be served. The prime suspect may be long dead, but the preponderance of evidence suggests he likely did not act alone.

Of course, a spouse will always be the first suspect in a homicide. Some will have doubts, especially when a case goes cold.  As we ask who and why would anyone want to kill Mary Plummer, we have to look at everyone, starting with those closest to her.
