Come forward with information, please

I would like to thank The Herald for running the story of the cold case cards on the front page of the Sunday paper, and for making the commitment to continue to run individual stories for the next year. For those of us who have had loved ones taken from us, with no idea of who or why, this is some hope that we may get some answers.

My brother, Dale, is on one of the cards. While he was the initial victim of this crime, everyone who knew and loved him are victims as well. I know there is someone out there who knows something that could make the difference in Dale’s unsolved murder, or the murder of one of the other people. I am writing this to ask that anyone with information on any of these cold cases, please do the right thing: Come forward and tell what you know to help us, the surviving victims of these murders.
