Since “The Trail Went Cold” originally launched in February 2016, we have featured over 300 cold cases and unsolved mysteries on the podcast and a decent amount of them have either wound up being solved or had significant developments take place. Two years ago, we released a special “update” episode which detailed a lot of these developments, but there have since been many more new updates to share. Examples include the identification of the Sumter County Does; an arrest in the murders of Bobbie Jo Oberholtzer and Annette Schnee, a.k.a. “The Orange Sock Murders”; the overturning of a wrongful conviction for the murders of Harold and Thelma Swain, and a number of shocking revelations in the murder of 12-year old Jonelle Matthews. These are just a few of the cases we are going to discuss in our second special “update” episode of “The Trail Went Cold”.
