I dont know if anyone can help me but many years ago, a man was found shot to death and I think they found him the woods.
Anyway he had a young daughter and a couple of years ago or so .. she brought to light her fathers murder had never been solved.
She also talked about a web site. I cant remember her or her fathers name but I remember the frustration that nothing seems to be done. I was off line and now Im trying to find info.
Ive looked for cold cases in Tenn or unsolved murders and still cant find anything.
I wish I had more info but I dont.
I didnt know him, or her, but I remembered how I felt.
Just like Vickie Bertram in Livingston--Ive read about her.
Hope some one can help.

I am not sure who you are looking for here, but here are a few websites you can look at:

www.coldcasecenter.com/cold_cases.htm

www.doenetwork.org/related.html

If these are not what you are looking for google "unsolved crimes in Tennessee". There was almost 50,000 hits.

Thank you,
I have been to these sites and have done alot of searches. Was hoping someone around here would remember who I am talking about.
I know the young girl is now an adult and bout
2-3 yrs ago she was in the Herald Citizen talking about her father. I remember reading her frustration about the case. Ive looked for cold cases in Cookeville, Putnam County, Tennessee, Baxter.
I know there was some speculation and there was another name mentioned, but I will not put that here. I just wanted to read about the case.
Thanks again for your help.

Try googling that other name. See if that helps you out. It may take a lot of going through garbage to get to the right thing but there is a lot of information that you can get from just one name. And if that don't work let me know and I will give you my email address and we can work together to try to figure this out, but sorry, I don't remember the case.

There are several, dont exactly how many, I know of a few, my dad and I talked about it.

The Sherrif's Dept doesnt have a list. They dont list cold cases or anything like that.

Sure wish they would put it in the paper, then maybe, someone might come forward on any of them.

Kentucky has a page showing all unsolved murders and missing people listed by county on their state police page. Ive yet to find anything for Tennessee.

Keep it quiet no one has to work hard and families still go on not knowing.

I for one, sure would like to know.
If they did, someone might remember something and give a tip and maybe some families could get closure.

Were you the young lady that a write up was done about your father's case still being unsolved in the Herald Citizen when you had turned 18?
