When a homicide occurs, the first 48 hours are crucial for detectives to find the killer. As the days, weeks, months and years mount, the odds of finding a killer dwindle. After the leads dry up, the case goes cold. Once this occurs, the chances of solving a case decrease. Meanwhile, detectives receive newer cases that can be solved in a timely manner. So, what happens when a case goes cold?
This is what happens: The case will sit on someone’s desk and become yesterday's news. Unfortunately, the public and the media will forget about the crime. But do you know who won't forget? The family and friends of the victims. They are forced to live with the pain of losing a loved one. For them, their case is more than a case file. The victims were sons, fathers, mothers, daughters, or friends. Catch my Killer is a podcast where ordinary people share stories about their murdered loved ones. I want listeners to remember these victims and their families as people and not as a crime statistic.
