Cold Case Files: The Podcast


Murders go unsolved. Killers slip through the cracks. With the passage of time, families lose hope and another unsolved homicide file settles into obscurity. The pattern is familiar, but changing, thanks to the efforts of a special breed of detectives. Cold Case Files tells the story of their work.

Join Brooke Gittings from the hit podcast, Convicted, as she takes a deeper dive into stories investigated on Cold Case Files and Cold Case Files Classic. This is Cold Case Files: The Podcast.

Who could have committed this horrific crime? Was it a disgruntled employee? Is there a connection to an illegal drug ring? And will advances in forensic technology decades later help to bring Brad Perry's killer to justice?
