Cold Justice is a show that's making headlines and doing some good in the world of unsolved murders. It follows two investigators - Kelly Siegler and Yolanda MClary - as they go around the country trying to help local police departments solve murders that have long gone cold.
I love these gals. They're unflinching in their pursuit of justice. They're unafraid of the criminals they encounter. And they're sympathetic to the victims' families. Kelly used to be a prosecutor. In fact, I've seen her once on another true crime show where she played an integral part in investigating the crime. Yolanda was a police investigator. Together they make one hell of a kick ass team.
But they aren't alone in their efforts. They bring in various top investigators to assist. One in particular, Johnny Bonds, stands out. That man seems to know just the right things to say to get information out of people. Hell, if he questioned me, I'd probably tell him my whole life story without blinking. (Lucky for me, he'd be totally bored by my non-criminal past.)
One site referred to the show as a mix of Rizzoli and Isles with CSI and Cold Case, but true. I can agree with that.
Sure, I don't always agree with some of their determinations. If you were here, you would hear me telling the gals how to do their jobs. But I'm an armchair quarterback when it comes to this stuff. They're the real thing.
And tonight is the beginning of new shows! So, check your local listings. Here it's on TNT at 8pm (9 eastern). I can't wait.
Plus, I follow their Facebook page - which is neat because they post updates to the crimes they've been investigating. The sad thing is that oftentimes, people will post about unsolved murders in their own towns - even in their own lives - and unfortunately, they're only two people doing the best the can. I think there should be more people out there like Kelly and Yolanda - digging deeper to see what the truth really is.
Are there any unsolved murders that you know about? Would you contact the Cold Justice team to have them investigate?
Do you armchair quarterback shows like this, too, or is that just me?
