    I remember when she went missing...it was only a few days after my daughter's 4th birthday and my heart was just broken for this little girl. Every time I would go to Bedford to shop, I would think of her. I pray they find her killer!

    Justice for Brandy: Forensic Advancements Moving Cold Case Forward

    [...]
    "The foresight to preserve evidence, the foresight to collect it, to get it to the laboratory has put us in a position to take advantage as technology evolves and I believe continues to evolve,” said Krantz. "The technology is evolving to where we can use other sources of DNA that were not, even if we had the sample, it wasn't testable. It is now testable."

    [...]
    "As good as the forensic evidence is, it does not trump good human intelligence. That's why I've just got to keep urging, I need people to come forward,” said Krantz. "I believe we have significantly narrowed the scope of suspects. We have I believe a short list."

    [...]
    Brandy Barlow has a legacy. Her case inspired the approach Krantz' office takes when crimes are violent or involve children. There is a response team of investigators, prosecutors, and victim witness advocates. They also spend a lot of time on prevention, making safety presentations at schools and to parents, all with the hope that what happened to Brandy will never happen to another child.
