A Texas sheriff’s cold case unit is bringing comfort and some degree of closure to the families of victims who have long-since gone missing.
“We always worked cold cases in the past,” Sheriff Chody told Breitbart Texas in a phone interview on Wednesday.
“We now have retired law enforcement officers — experienced investigators — who volunteer their time to actively focus on developing these cold cases,” Chody explained.
Detective work and DNA testing led to her identification as Sue Ann Huskey.
This week, the family got another step closer to closure and comfort as Rockdale Memorial Company donated and installed a headstone on her previously unmarked grave.
