Cold Case Spotlight – Carrie Singer (update 2.0)

UPDATE 2.0: After 21 months we are finally able to talk about something that has been going on behind the scenes since March 2016. That is when we were contacted by a television production company asking if we could help them identify victims of unsolved homicides.
