TN - Peggy Cox, 49, Franklin, 1 Feb 1991
Franklin, TN is about 20 minutes south of downtown Nashville. Wonder what the alibis were of those close to Ms. Cox.
FRANKLIN — Franklin police hope soon to have an answer to a question that has dogged them for more than 20 years: Who killed Peggy Cox?
On Feb. 1, 1991, the mother of three was shot and killed at the Hardee’s drive-thru window where she was working on her 49th birthday.
Last week, Franklin Detective Darren Barnes presented the case — the department’s only unsolved homicide — to the Vidocq Society, an exclusive crime-solving organization that meets monthly at the Union League of Philadelphia, Penn.

Unsolved murder bedevils police 24 years later
By JILL COWAN
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Almost 25 years after it happened, a heinous crime in Franklin, Tennessee, remains unsolved.
On Feb. 1, 1991, a driver pulled around to the small Hardee's drive-thru window, where Peggy Cox prepared to serve the last customer of the night.
The case remains a lingering scar that has bedeviled a police department and left a family struggling to imagine life with closure.

FBI is featuring this case on their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/FBI/videos/vb.72092591211/10153247635886212/?type=2&theater
The FBI began providing assistance in the case and, in 2014, initially offered a reward of $10,000. It’s our hope that this latest public push by law enforcement in the case leads to someone coming forward with a key piece of information or evidence that results in justice for Peggy Cox and closure for her three children

Family holds out hope mom’s killer will be found
“Somebody will eventually talk about it and tell what they know,” Desiree Cox said. “My mother didn’t have an enemy in the world. She was friendly, quiet and everybody’s friend.”
For Desiree’s sister Rachel, it is especially hard because she has four sons who never got the chance to meet or know their grandmother.
“I don’t bring it up a lot, but when I do, they understand a bit more about what happened as they have gotten older,” she said. “The little guys don’t really understand everything yet.”
Franklin police review the cold case at least once a year and have interviewed several people. But they said they still need more information to make an arrest.
