False information aired!
Please contact me as soon as possible! My sister was killed in 1983 and it is a cold case. I was just watching Cold Case Files, Season 1 Episode 3 "She Never Came Home" and was particularly interested in this episode as I noted similarities in this case, as the victim was also only 14, the murder occurred in the same town and only a few months after my sister's murder. I was shocked to hear my sister's name mentioned as I was watching it and the detective identified a man as her killer. Imagine my shock, as I had not heard this news!!! First I was upset I wasn't informed, especially since I realized the show originally aired in 2017 then I was given false hope when I called the detective on the case, only to find out this information is FALSE! How can a show like this that relies on tips from the public to help solve these cases allow this to even happen?!? The victims/ public rely on the accuracy of these shows to help get the information out there to help get answers, tips and RESOLUTION. This kind of misinformation can be very detrimental to the case! One would think the producers would consult with the actual detectives on the case before airing these shows to get the facts straight. This is not okay!
