I usually use this blog to comment on family law issues or post stories which relate to divorce, child custody, etc. However, I came across an article today, which I find interesting and wanted to share with people who frequent my blog. There are plenty of cold cases out there today where murders go unsolved or missing persons are yet to be found. Florida has put certain cold case information onto playing cards and has given them to inmates for them to play with, hoping that the information on the cards may trigger memories or information that can lead to resolution of some of these cases. Whether inmates actually fess up if they have information is up for debate, but if this approach to solving cold cases ends up with any substantial leads on these old cases, whoever came up with the playing card method should be given a pat on the back.
