in a world of uncertainty Unsolved Mysteries often haunt us for years from long-lost siblings to missing persons there are some cases that remain eerie and unresolved with no closure in sight but in 2023 several cold cases were miraculously solved by dedicated police and private investigators providing much needed resolution to heartbroken families join us as we take you through 2023's most bizarre mysterious and horrifying stories of cold cases that eventually found some form of closure the case of amor Wiggins on January 28 2012 an Opalika Alabama a local stumbled upon a human skull near the Brookhaven Trailer Park on her Street after further inspection of the area police officers discovered that there were more skills to remain scattered about furthermore a pink long-sleeved shirt with heart-shaped buttons was located just off the creek Bank police could not determine if this garment belonged to the victim detectives concluded that the skull likely to belong to a young African-American girl between four and seven years old a deformity in her left eye indicated she may have been abused while her bones revealed signs of malnourishment and neglect utilizing the help of forensic Artistry an image of what the girl may have looked like was unveiled despite reviewing school and birth records detectives were unable to uncover any information on her identity therefore she became known as the Opelika Jane Doe four years later in 2016 a bible school teacher from the greater Peace church which was located only 10 minutes away from where the remains were discovered uncovered photographs of a little girl who bore a strikling resemblance to the Opelika Jane Doe the teacher told police that the girl's pictures were taken in the summer of 2011 and recalled that the girl had disheveled hair was not very hygienic and seemed reclusive or unable to communicate with other kids the little girl was between four and five years old at the time the teacher could not recall her name and the church at which she attended had failed to register any of his children leaving no traceable records working with what they've got police used advanced imaging software to enhance the old photo as much as possible hoping that a member of the public would help them identify the Opelika chain Doe then in 2017 experts from the University of South Florida's Institute for forensic anthropology performed a series of isotope tests on our bones and came to the conclusion that she probably lived in the Southeastern parts of the United States in January 2022 the help of authorum Laboratories was employed by the Opelika Police Department othram is an advanced forensic sequencing lab built to apply the power of modern parallel sequencing to forensic evidence her remains were sent to othrum's laboratory a DNA extract from these remains was then synthesized which facilitated the creation of a more comprehensive geological profile taking Mathers further the Opelika Police Department sought out the help of Barbara Ray ventor a renowned geneticist who was mostly known for 80 police investigations with identifying the Golden State killer to supply investigative leads in January 2023 all thrum was finally able to uncover the identity of the Opelika Jane Doe she was a little girl by the name of Amore jovaya Wiggins Amore's father was known as Lamar vickerstaff a 50 year old native of Opelika Lamar was serving in the U.S Navy prior to the discovery's announcements detectives Journey to the Mayport Naval Station in Jacksonville where Lamar was stationed at the time and confronted him about his starter's passing Lamar refused to cooperate when questioned about the girls remains Ruth Lamar's wife to whom he'd been married since May 2006 informed detectives that she had no idea who she was or who her real mother might have been it was later discovered that Amore's real mother was Sherry Wiggins who hailed from Maryland Sherry met Lamar vickerstaff when she was only 19. Lamar was 35 and serving in the Navy at the time the two lived in the same apartment complex soon after they decided to take the next step and move in together when Sherry discovered her pregnancy despite this Lamar's family was deeply angered by the fact that their son had a child out of wedlock so the couple agreed to split up after coming to the realization that getting married wouldn't be feasible at the age of 37 Sherry told detectives that she was indeed a Moore's biological mother she confirmed that Lamar and Ruth had received full legal custody over more back in 2009 that Sherry was paying child support to Lamar since then and that her visitation rights were suspended at the time of Amor's death Lamar and Ruth were apprehended in Jacksonville Florida on January 17 2023 they are currently being detained at the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and are both charged with failure to report a missing child in addition to these charges Lamar is also facing a felony murder charge Sherry Amore's real mother spoke out publicly expressing her feelings on a community's reaction to her daughter's case she stated that although some have been kind and understanding of her situation many were quick to pass judgment on her without any knowledge of what truly happened despite this Sherry said the only thing she was worried about was getting Justice for more she extended an immense amount of gratitude towards the Opelika Police Department who never gave up on finding her missing child the case of Deanna Denise Howland on the spring day of May 2004 35 year old Deanna Denise Howland vanished Without a Trace Deanna hailed from Alton Illinois she was a mother of four yet most of her children never knew her Deanna's life leading up to her mysterious Vanishing was troubled to say the least for years she endured a drug addiction that caused her lifestyle to be unsettled and unpredictable nevertheless one of her daughters noticed something was amiss when Deanna neglected to appear for school play she had promised her to attend in May 2004. then on a fateful day in June of 2004 maintenance workers at the rest stop off Interstate 70 discovered a human body which had been discarded down a grassy incline the body belonged to a woman yet some parts of her were missing all she had on was a black bra the lack of decomposition suggested that her death had likely been recent moreover a sharp blade was found in a nearby sewer having been discarded at the scene of the crime investigators tried identifying the body using what little evidence they had available to them such as a c-section scar but they were ultimately unsuccessful as for who was responsible for the murder there was only one clue Witnesses reported that they saw a white utility van parked in the vicinity of the crime scene 24 hours prior to the discovery of the Torso with no fresh leads to go by and with no way of figuring out the woman's identity at the time her case went cold then twelve years later in 2016 Advanced DNA testing revealed that the mysterious Jane Doe was in fact Deanna Howland subsequently using the same technology police were also able to discover the identity of her murderer by testing the knife which was left at the scene of the crime it was a man by the name of Mike Clardy Mike was apprehended in Maryland Heights at the residence he shared with his spouse it turns out following Diana's murder Mike had had a car accident that rented him blind Mike Clardy confessed to murdering Deanna in his home and moving her body to where it was eventually found he mentioned that he met Deanna while she was working on the street and that his reasons for killing her in such a horrific manner were all because of a disagreement if found guilty he is facing up to 40 years in prison for his crime the case of noelie Renee Trice and Brian Keith Lash it was the morning hours of August 11 2017 when someone stumbled upon the lifeless bodies of noelie Renee Trice and Brian Keith Lashley in their Fort Wayne Indiana home noeli was born on June 28 1991. Brian on the other hand was born on the 7th of July in 1987. they were 25 and 29 years
old respectively officers immediately responded to the scene and found blood splattered throughout the residence investigators were able to determine that a party had taken place at the couple's home earlier that night after questioning family members and guests who attended police began analyzing the scene of the crime law enforcement Personnel carefully examined noely's phone discovered in the hallway for any fingerprints unsurprisingly noeli's fingerprints were found all over the phone but surprisingly another unknown fingerprint was also discovered detectives worked tirelessly to find a match for the mysterious fingerprint initially they suspected it may have belonged to Brian but after running through it their database they soon discovered that the fingerprint belonged to Dustin Neal and old acquaintance of the couple when questioned Dustin revealed that he had known noeli for about 20 years that he had gone straight to his mother's house right after the party and perhaps most intriguing of all that he was aware of the couple's possession of three pounds of marijuana which according to Dustin himself was worth a lot of money with no evidence against him Dustin was allowed to go home and it seemed as though noelie and Brian's murderer would never be found but then a person was tracked down who had spoken to Dustin around the time of the murders unraveling an even bigger mystery this individual revealed that Dustin contacted him on 10th of June 2017. Dustin sounded on edge and claimed he had a large quantity of marijuana up for sale in July 2022 another Witness alerted police that Dustin Neal's half-brother had told him his brother was responsible for what happened to noeli and Brian investigating further authorities spoke with the half-brother in October of that same year who confessed the hearing Dustin bragging about killing both noeli and Brian in October of 2022 yet another witness came forward this time claiming that Dustin had told them that he was responsible for the deaths of noeli Brian and five other people during that same month police analyzed Dustin's cell phone and they discovered that a cell phone signals would have placed them at the scene of the crime between 6 20 am and 7 04 am with so much evidence now in the police possession the truth was finally revealed in an ill-conceived attempt to steal some marijuana Neil entered the couple's home through a window believing nobody was there unfortunately he was then spotted by Brian unsure what to do Neil lunged at Brian with the knife and murdered him he then went on to do the same thing to noeli on January 1st of 2023 Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Sheriff's Department charged and arrested 35-year-old Neal in Wells County Dustin will soon be extradited to Allen County where he will be charged with the murder of noelie Renee Trice and Brian Keith Lashley after nearly six years since this crime was committed justice has finally been served the case of Daisy May Tallman in 2008 an unidentified female skeletal remains were discovered west of white swan the akima coroner's office explored All Leads available to try and identify her but had no luck with traditional DNA testing as the bones did not provide an accurate DNA profile with every lead run dry and no DNA results in hand this case soon faded Into Obscurity then in 2022 the akima County coroner's office and othram joined forces to utilize Advanced DNA testing with the aim of identifying this unknown woman the skeletal remains were sent to othram where scientists were able to finally obtain a usable extract from them subsequently the lab employed forensic grade genome sequencing to construct a complete DNA profile the Yakima County coroner's office conducted an investigation and provided a familiar reference DNA sample M relied on state-of-the-art familiar testing technology to confirm the supposed connection between the reference sample and the unknown females genetic material after a thorough investigation it was confirmed that the unidentified female was Daisy May Tallman otherwise known as Daisy May Heath she was born on 10th of January 1958. described by those who were fortunate enough to know her Daisy was a lively and courageous young girl with the introverted personality she treasured her Ken and the old-fashioned lifestyle never shying away from lending a hand whenever needed her missing persons report revealed that she had been residing with relatives in the akima Indian Reservation when she went missing later her backpack and keys were discovered at a secluded Locale called Soda Springs within the reservations territory Daisy disappeared during the last days of August 1987 and was not reported missing by her family until late October the reason her family waited two full months before reporting her missing was that she had a habit of Disappearing for days sometimes even weeks at a time Daisy was 29 years old at the time of her death the exact circumstances of her passing remain unknown the case of Willow Mina filkins 81 year old will o'mina Violet filkins was a resident of East Greenbush New York she loved life and spent the years following her retirement tending to her garden and doing volunteer work Violet lived in East Greenbush for 60 years but grew up in a neighboring town of Rensselaer alongside nine other siblings she was never married and lived alone on the 19th of August 1994 Violet's brother and nice arrived at her apartment blissfully unaware of what they were about to witness though her car a 1989 Plymouth Reliant was parked in her normal spot at the multi-building complex the two noticed that it was parked in an unusual way not at all how Violet typically Parks intrigued the two ventured inside the building complex as soon as they went inside Violet's home they were met with a grisly sight it was their beloved sibling not full of vibrancy as usual but instead lying lifelessly on her apartment floor an autopsy later revealed that Violet had been assaulted two days prior to the discovery of her body the cause of death was determined to be trauma to the Head law enforcement officers theorized that violence assailant likely confronted her during a robbery and this hypothesis became more readily apparent after it was discovered that her car had been stolen only to be returned on the very same day which explains the unusual way it was parked when her brother and sister saw it three years later some of Violet's possessions were also discovered near the Nassau shodak Cemetery in the village of Nassau 10 miles Southeast of her apartment complex in spite of the extensive number of leads pursued investigators failed to pin down a likely suspect Violet's case went cold as a result in 2019 25 years after the original incident occurred investigators received a tip from a woman who said that her boyfriend had confessed to robbing an elderly woman before hitting her and leaving her to die that poor old woman I robbed her I hit her and I just left her there the boyfriend's name was Jeremiah James cuvette he was 18 at the time the crime took place guvette's name was included in police documents as having been questioned regarding the murder but was subsequently ruled out as a potential suspect upon graduating from high school guvette moved to Red Hook New York where he then enlisted in the U.S Air Force and was assigned at Patrick Air Force base near Cape Canaveral after being discharged from the military he returned home to Red Hood and eventually settled in Rosendale gouvette was 43 at the time and had found a job working as a bus driver for elderly seniors when Law Enforcement Officers arrived at guvet's home on October 1st 2019 and questioned him about Violet's murder he instantly became defensive and grew visibly agitated furthermore he refused to talk to anyone without an attorney present at the same time police also questioned guvette's family members acquaintances and colleagues the next day however cuvette was found dead he had taken his own life just before his untimely death it was reported he contacted a family member stating that he didn't want to go to jail cuvette sounded terrified and distressed throughout the ominous phone call investigators didn't retrieve fingerprints and DNA from Gazette for use as proof in the investigation a comparison between gouvette's fingerprint and another previously unidentified fingerprint found on a wooden corner of a coffee table at the scene of the crime revealed when investigators were already suspecting the fingerprints were one and the same on the 19th of January 2023 the East Greenbush Police Department convened a press conference to announce that Jeremiah James gouvette was the man responsible for the taking of Willow Mina's felkin's life at the news conference will amina's niece expressed great appreciation for law enforcement and remembered her aunt as a humble Woman Who Lived peacefully and spread nothing but joy and kindness to all those around her the case of Dorothy Lynn Ricker on October 27 1997 the Michigan State Police received a call about a body of an unclothed woman who had washed up on shore near Fox Farm Road in Manistee County when they arrived at the scene they discovered that she was already deceased for some time at the time of Discovery the only physical identifier this woman had on her was a single earring an autopsy later revealed that her death was due to asphyxia via drowning and determined it was probably accidental due to the limited technology at the time nobody could figure out with certainty who the woman was but in September 2020 the Michigan State Police Cadillac post and missing persons coordination unit decided to reopen the investigation due to the availability of more advanced DNA testing techniques as a result the woman's body was exhumed and brought to a lab for further examination police officials sought the help of a DNA doe project a non-profit that assists in providing closures for families and investigators by leveraging investigative genetic genealogy in July 2021 a potential familiar Association was identified through the use of this technology the findings were then supplied by the DNA dough project to Michigan State Police who conducted further investigations after looking at all the evidence authorities determined a potential link between a woman's remains and a thing family who lived in Acton Maine subsequently Michigan State Police secured familiar DNA reference samples from a potential relative unfortunately the bone samples taken from the woman's remains were not suitable for traditional testing due to their deteriorated state therefore they were submitted to Intermountain forensics in Salt Lake City Utah and with Advanced Next Generation sequencing a positive identification was reached on December 2022 The Remains were identified as those of Dorothy Lynn Ricker a 26 year old woman who had been living in Chicago before she vanished Dorothy was last seen on October 2nd 1997 at 12 30 PM when officers from the Saint Francis Police Department in Wisconsin encountered her sitting on a beach near the lake and spoke with her officers recalled she told them that she was enjoying the lakefront and the Sun Dorothy wasn't registered as missing at the time so officers didn't think much of it Dorothy's car was found abandoned shortly after she was last seen whether Dorothy took her own life or whether there was some form of Foul Play remains a mystery to this day the case of Daniel G Garza Gonzalez on March 13 1973 a shocking Discovery was made on the banks of Saginaw River in Milwaukee Michigan a man's body had been unceremoniously cast out into the waters autopsy reports showed that he had sustained multiple gunshot wounds and injuries caused by blunt force trauma it appeared someone had hit him on the back of his head before shooting and throwing away his body leaving behind no Trace with no clues as to whom the culprit could be authorities laid the man's body in an unmarked grave in the case went cold for almost 50 years however in 2020 the Michigan State Police Cold Case team and their missing person's coordination unit reopened the case they exhumed the body for advanced DNA testing and sent a bone sample to Australia forensics for forensics genetic genealogy in late 2021 with help from the non-profit DNA dough project Inc they identified a possible familiar match with collaboration between the Texas Rangers and the DNA dough project they were able to link the remains to a family in Beeville Texas and obtain familiar DNA reference samples which were sent to an FBI lab for comparison on January 5th of 2023 it was announced that the John Doe in question had been identified as Vietnam War veteran Daniel G Garza Gonzalez who was only 28 years old at the time of his disappearance following his return to America he had left Fort Worth Texas in search of work in Flint Michigan but never made it there or back home again Daniel's killer remains unknown the Michigan State Police Cold Case team and missing persons coordination unit is still calling for anyone with information on Daniel's case to come forward the case of Lillian the Khloe 89 years old Lillian de Chloe was a former teacher and nurse who lived in Broward county in 1994. she suffered from memory loss and needed assistance with day-to-day activities her niece June Nicholas took care of her on the afternoon of April 29 1994 June entered her aunt's home only to find Lillian had been murdered it appeared as though the assailant had gotten into the house through a bedroom window and ransacked the place indicating it was likely not a targeted attack but rather a robbery gone wrong in an effort to gather more information the police diligently collected various objects from a crime scene as evidence years later in 2004 detectives at Broward County Sheriff's Office retested Lillian's nightgown and discovered male DNA on it hoping to solve the case Broward County Sheriff's Office Cold Case unit reopened the investigation in 2019.
they examined previous records and DNA databases combing them for any potential leads that may have missed in the end they found a likely suspect a homeless man by the name of Johnny Mack Brown Johnny Mack Brown was a former United States Marine who once lived just down the street from Lillian his family members shared with detectives that he had been suffering from substance abuse and PTSD for a number of years something which eventually led up to his death in 2010 in August 2022 investigators obtained a court order to unearth Brown's remains from the south Florida National Cemetery in Palm Beach County tasks conducted by the Broward County Sheriff's Office crime lab revealed that Brown's DNA was a direct match with the DNA left on Lillian's nightgown truth was finally revealed Johnny Mack Brown was responsible for what happened to Lillian Lillian's case was now solved when June Nicholas found out who her aunt Killers was she had this to say I know that wherever she is she can sleep in peace the case of Philip Khan on July 24 2000 an unidentified male body was discovered floating in the Atlantic Ocean 27 miles off the coast of Maine near the grand Manon Banks in an effort to identify this man the main office of chief medical examiner performed an autopsy and took DNA and fingerprint samples the samples were submitted to the FBI yet no matches were found despite their best efforts no new leads were Unearthed by the police and the case went cold in 2019 the main office of chief medical examiner Enlisted the help of parabon nanolabs to evaluate the DNA and attempt forensic genealogy hoping to uncover any potential leads unfortunately their efforts yielded no tangible results in March 2022 the main office of chief medical examiner held a meeting with representatives from the FBI's criminal justice Information Services to discuss modernized Technologies available through their organization the unidentified man's fingerprints and dental records were sent for analysis in May 2022 after review by DPI services and further examination at the FBI it was determined that the remains belong to 84 Euro Philip Khan who had gone missing in Las Vegas in 2000. one of Philip's family members was notified of the disturbing finding Philip had left Las Vegas Nevada in July 2020 and landed in New York how his body ended up off the coast of Maine is a puzzle yet to be solved the case of William and Aina Campbell William and Ina Campbell were a loving elderly couple both in her 80s who lived on Jackson Road Clarksville Tennessee during a heavy snowstorm in 2010 the couple's mailbox was struck by an unfortunate neighbor driving on the slippery roads the neighbor tried calling several times but William Campbell was not answering his phone so the neighbor tried calling Daniel champagne Daniel was also their neighbor but was very close to the Campbells in fact that Campbell's thought of him as a son and even entrusted him with a spare set of keys to their house Daniel attempted to reach out to the couple yet there was no response with no other option he felt that he had no other recourse but to use the key he'd been given to gain entrance into their home and check if everything was okay when he entered the house he was greeted by an appalling site William and Ina Campbell lay on their beds they had been murdered in their sleep as they aged the Campbells endured a few medical issues which necessitated them sleeping in separate beds when Daniel discovered Aina she still had her auctioned tube attached to her nose after the shock wore out and he slowly began grasping the reality of what he saw Daniel looked around him and noticed that the drawers were all ripped apart and all of the kitchen cupboards were left hanging open indicating that a place had been ransacked what was most peculiar of all is that none of the Campbell's guns were taken according to the Clarksville police detective Tim Anderson guns are the number one thing that gets stolen during a robbery immediately Daniel informed the police who promptly arrived on the scene and began analyzing all the evidence some of the neighbors were questioned and recalled that the dogs never barked this was strange as the Campbell's dogs definitely would bark if a stranger walked inside the home unannounced this led officers to surmise that it was someone who was well acquainted with the victims and their dogs who had committed to crime when investigators found most bizarre was that no items were of value were taken jewelry boxes remained untouched the safe had not been tampered with and all of the money that Campbell's had lying around was still there when police arrived all of this led officers to conclude that the person behind the crime must have had ulterior motives that he stood to gain something more substantial than a few pieces of expensive jewelry and a few hundred dollars their adopted son William Roger Campbell immediately became a person of interest as he was next in line to inherit their state if they were to pass away Bill Campbell's estate was valued at a hundred and thirty thousand dollars and aina's estate was worth approximately a hundred and twenty thousand dollars investigators also recalled that Roger refused to cooperate with them fully and even provided several inconsistencies during questioning furthermore he was declared the last known person to see his parents alive despite all of that at the time there wasn't enough evidence linking him to the scene of the crime time passed and Leeds ran thin interest in the case slowly fizzled out then 11 years later on June 21st 2021 Roger Campbell was apprehended at his home by deputies from the loudest County Sheriff's Office and what must have been an unexpected turn of events for him and extradited to Clarksville his bond was set at five hundred thousand dollars he was charged with the murder of his adoptive parents but Roger maintained his innocence pleading not guilty to two counts of first-degree murder what he failed to take into consideration was that detectives were hard at work Gathering up all the evidence necessary for constructing a solid case against him his trial began on January 2023 during the trial prosecutors showcased what detectives have managed to unearth throughout the years and Rogers prospects for a not guilty verdict slowly began diminishing it was revealed that only a few days after the Campbell's remains were found Law Enforcement Officers traveled to Georgia in order to question him and in his truck they noticed an ominously red stained sheep tucked away beneath one of the seats although testing could not determine whether or not it was actually blood detectives also discovered traces of Roger's blood found on the surface of a dish soap bottle near the kitchen sink his upstairs bathroom sink drain was also looked at and it tested positive for blood Roger Campbell's ex-wife and Son both took to the stand and testified against him William Sean Campbell the 35 year old son of Roger Campbell fondly remembered having a close bond with his late grandparents as War's father he only saw him on very rare occasions throughout his childhood I've been on this Earth 35 years and in that 35 years I've spent less than 24 hours around him Sean Campbell also revealed that shortly after his grandparents funeral he learned of an estate auction taking place at their residence he felt betrayed because his father never reached out to him about keeping any mementos from his grandparents as for 70 year old Linda Campbell Roger's former spouse she testified in court that three days before the Campbells were discovered dead she worked at the commissary and was paged to register 17. only to see Rogers there alongside one of his would-be victims his mother Aina Campbell before then Linda hadn't seen or even spoken to Roger for 13 years he seemed a bit too eager to strike up a conversation with her only to cut it short after making it explicitly clear that he was only in town for a short while and will be leaving on the 28th of January which as Freight would have it was the very same day the Campbells met their gruesome fate I thought why do I care when you're leaving it seemed as if Roger's real motive was to devise an alibi after examining the crime scene detectives uncovered two 25 caliber shell casings in the victim's room that were linked to one particular firearm interestingly enough only one casing matched a box of ammunition found at the site the Box belonged to the late Bill Campbell according to Andrew Smith the proprietor of its Time clock shop the Campbell's owned a very rare Lynn scritch grandfather clock Smith testified that he had been regularly maintaining the Campbell's clock for several years visiting their residents yearly to make repairs when Smith saw the clock he offered build Campbell five thousand dollars for it as fate would have it in front of Roger Bill however knew the timepiece was a prize antique so he refused to part with it Beth recalled that in the days following the tragedy he received a phone call inquiring if he was still interested in purchasing the Lin's critch grandfather clock excitedly he agreed and was given directions on where to go and inspected when Smith got to the Campbell's household he let the courtroom know how thrilled he was to finally be able to purchase the clock unfortunately instead of his frequent patrons it was Roger their adopted son who greeted him I said where's your mom and dad he seemed nervous shaky and said didn't you hear mom and dad were shot and killed in the bedrooms without hesitation Smith attempted to put a halt to the sale however Roger tried reassuring him insisting that he was their only Heir and that he can do whatever he pleased with his parents belongings Smith was eventually convinced and decided to go ahead with the transaction what Smith found most bizarre was that Roger seemed overly unfazed by his parents brutal demise as he tried his luck by bargaining for six thousand instead of five thousand an attempt that ultimately failed in the end Roger agreed to part with his father's clock for only five thousand dollars Roger's previous testimony also came back to haunt him he reported to detectives that he had left his parents home at about 7 A.M on
January 28 2010 noting that they were still wearing their nightwear when he set off forensic Specialists determined the time of death was somewhere around 6 20 a.m prior to Roger's departure from the premises all in all prosecutors argued that Roger Campbell was clearly a man influenced by greed they showcase just how much Roger had financially profited from the crime they weren't dying fast enough said assistant district attorney Crystal Morgan that's why he killed them he needed money and they weren't dying quick enough on January 23 2023 66 year old William Roger Campbell was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder despite the unfortunate presence of hatred and greed in our world Justice is still Within Reach thanks to Modern Technologies an Innovative investigation methods the truth can now be uncovered more easily than ever before as long as kindness and determination persist we will thankfully always have a fighting chance of finding it
