    Franklin, TN is about 20 minutes south of downtown Nashville. Wonder what the alibis were of those close to Ms. Cox.

    Unsolved murder bedevils police 24 years later

    By JILL COWAN
    The Tennessean
    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

    A $25,000 reward remains active.

    Wednesday marked 26 years since Peggy Cox was shot to death while working at a Hardee’s on Murfreesboro Road. She was killed on her 49th birthday.

    Cox took an order at 11:45 p.m. at the drive-thru. When the vehicle drove up to the window, Cox was shot in the neck with a small caliber handgun.

    Her 20-year-old son - also her co-worker - found her lying on the floor. She was taken to an area hospital, where she died.

    What a heartbreaking story...I wasn't familiar with this case before but I read through some articles on it last night. It's always so hard for me to wrap my head around cases like this that are just so random, it's impossible to know where to start. I really hope this family gets some closure soon.
