Cold Case Cracking
Unsolved mysteries, cold cases, whatever you want to call them... some crimes just don't get solved.
But now a newly formed unit may be on its way to solving the oldest of crimes, one dating back to 1966.
41-years ago this week, a body was found in Cross Creek.
Identification on the man belonged to James Harold Thomas. But a dental records check didn't match. So the case went cold, until now.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office just formed a Cold Case Unit.
"With the help of local authorities, the forensic pathology lab, DNA... we're hopefully going to solve this case along with some of the other cases unsolved," says Alachua County Sheriff's Sergeant Keith Faulk.
The Cold Case Unit is working on about two dozen cold cases right now. Cases you might remember, like the disappearance ofÂ Tiffany Sessions.
