Variety Talk Radio With Sonia Fitch
Cold Case Chat
By: Joseph Giacalone
Variety Talk Radio. The entire interview was one hour, but the time flew by with lots of Email questions. One lucky caller received a signed copy of my textbook, the Criminal Investigative Function: A Guide for New Investigators.
Topics ranged from what the goals of a cold case squad are, what are some of the qualities of a good investigator to serial murder and crime television shows. As far as I'm concerned, the best detective show that was ever on television was, Barney Miller from the 1970s. It is the closest to real life: the humor and the horror all rolled up into one half an hour.
We also discussed how families can get more involved in the process and how important closure is for them. I received a few Emails after the show asking for the link to the article: How to Ask for a Cold Case to be Reexamined. Family members and friends can also find more articles that may help them on their way to the quest for justice in the Family Guide tab found at the top of the Home page.
I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did participating in it.
