I don't know if any of you watch Cold Justice on TNT, but I've got a girl crush on these two women who go around the country trying close cold cases and bring murderers to justice. This week, I'll focus on one and next week, I'll focus on the other. I love them both equally, but someone had to come first.
Yolanda McClary. She's the law enforcement side of the duo. (Kelly Siegler is the prosecutorial side.) She's a former crime scene investigator from Las Vegas. Yes, she is the real CSI - and is the basis for the red-headed gal on that show. She totally rocks the red hair. And she investigated over 7000 crimes in her 26 years with LVPD.
She's gritty and tough - the way a cop ought to be - but she's sensitive to the victims' families and while she does have a heart of gold, it's clad in steel. And she's smart as a whip. Naturally.
Heaven forbid anything should ever happen to me or mine, but if it did, I know I'd want her investigating the crime.
She kicks ass.
If you're interested in more about Yolanda, follow her on Facebook. I do, and I love her posts. She kinda makes me feel better about all the crime in the world because I know she's out there trying to solve it.
