    Sometimes it takes a long time, but it is encouraging that they continue to get new leads.

    That was in court -- the links should still take you to the case.

    Most courts are still delayed due to COVID-19 of course, may be no progress at all.

    Love to know the outcome!

    They just bumped up the reward to $75,000 until Dec. 31, 2020. Let’s hope they are getting close!!

    Wow, what a coincidence, was just thinking/talking about Melissa’s case in Caitlyn Kaufman’s case.

    Hi @Kooifish, welcome. :) Do you have a link please for this? Thank you.

    I wonder if the reward was just bumped because of this, which literally just happened - From Caitlyn Kaufman’s case:

    “Chief Drake said they had a break in the case within an hour of a $50,000 reward being announced for information leading to an arrest.”

    Suspect arrested in killing of Nashville nurse Caitlyn Kaufman




    From Caitlyn’s thread:
    I am very interested in learning more about these Colorado individuals / we are now on thread 4:

    I have added some more cases to the above post for reference/statistical study, etc, as well as organized it chronologically/ Again, this is not to say that any are related to Melissa’s case.

    It is truly incredible how often people are shot while driving / this was only a few recent search results:

    Wow!! It really is incredible, especially seeing a few that happened close-ish to Melissa’s hometown. It feels like such an anomaly to someone that lives in small town Iowa!!!!

    That’s okay, screenshots from Facebook, and stuff from family’s pages aren’t allowed here anyway per TOS (rules linked below). Perhaps we can find another link that is mainstream media. :)

    I wanted to add another case to the list. This appears to be a cold case. I hope it’s okay to add it this way. Maggie O'Brien's owner found dead in car on I-55 had been shot hours earlier

    This happened Nov 10,2016 in St. Louis, MO

    Wow, I know where this is. Very shocking and random, such a tragedy. It does make you wonder if there are connections among these three shootings. I was just reading about the Caitlyn Kaufman case the other day. Aren't there still unsolved shootings like this in Colorado and also around Columbus, OH?
