Post 3635 - A Tip

So, how are you this evening?

As is now my habit, I went to the Archives after work, there to investigate another unsolved murder for an upcoming issue of Frank. But I wasn't sure what one to look at. I was considering a few different cases, until my editor emailed me today and told me that a subscriber had re-upped and asked if I wanted to consider a particular unsolved murder going back quite a few years. I was somewhat familiar with the case, had heard of it and everything. But I had not begun a formal look into it.

This person supplied a phone number. I will call this person in the next day or two, as the person attended school with the murder victim and may have some insight into the case.

So, that's the case I looked at this evening. I found the person's obituary. With that, I found names of next of kin, very helpful indeed when it comes to tracking down family members who might agree to speak to me.

There are plenty of unsolved murders and missing persons cases in the province, far more than you might realize until you start thinking about it. I keep discovering ones that are nearly forgotten today. Sad that some cases continue to get coverage, while others don't.

Anyway, it has been a long day. I think I will turn in.

See you tomorrow, my lovelies.
