The First Case for the DPD’s New Cold Case Unit

I was happy to learn from Leading Off this morning that the DPD has once again fired up its cold case squad. I suggest they look into the 45-year-old unsolved murder that Mike Mooney wrote about for our January issue. Beverly Jean Hope was bludgeoned to death with a fireplace log. There is reason to believe that an ex-husband of Hope’s twin sister killed her. Also, Mike learned that Hope’s husband, who is still alive, took out three life insurance policies on his wife one week before she was murdered — a fact unknown by investigators at the time of the crime. There’s a lot to look into.
