    AR - Ruby Stapleton, 59, Searcy, 8 Oct 1963

    https://www.usnews.com/news/best-sta...cold-case-file

    An Arkansas court granted a woman access to the file of the Arkansas State Police investigation into her grandmother's 1963 abduction and killing after a nearly four-year battle...

    Bates first filed her request under the state Freedom of Information Act in 2013, saying she hoped to gain closure for her mother and family. But she was denied access by state police who said disclosing the file would hamper the investigation...

    Stapleton, 59, went missing after leaving her home to go to a laundromat. She was found nude in some woods near White County nearly two weeks after her disappearance. Autopsy records showed Stapleton had been strangled, with deep scratches on her chest and a wad of cotton in her throat.

    "Asked about the apparent discrepancy with the Arkansas Supreme Court opinion -- which said state police cited evidence of an ongoing investigation only after Keech filed the lawsuit -- Sadler said he would need to speak to counsel in order to come back with a timeline." Haha...busted.

    "She first had the idea while she was watching Cold Justice on TNT during her maternity leave. She thought perhaps the show could investigate her grandmother's death.Bates contacted the White County sheriff's office and Searcy Police Department, who she said were willing to work with her, but they told her that the state police had jurisdiction over the case." Access Denied By State Police.
