"Very Short Form True Crime"
Murders, rapes, and other crimes happen every single day. These are not cases that stand out in some unique sort of way, simply cases that have gone down in the books as horrifying. Discarded bodies, missing women, stolen identification. It would seem as if we are talking about this week's news stories, but in fact, we are talking about some of the most notorious cases that police have ever faced. Some of these cases were solved, some of them gone cold, and some of them seem oddly familiar to what we see going on today.
There is no such thing as the perfect crime, but there are some crimes that go unsolved for a long time. They are called cold cases. The authorities run out of leads and clues to track down, and sometimes these old crimes go for years and even decades unsolved. The cases contained in Cold Cases Solved are some of these stories.
