Cold Cases with Cubanarama and Gumersindo Vidot 2/22/2011

Cold Cases with Cubanarama & Gumersindo Vidot

We dedicate our first “Cold Cases Show” Jodi Huisentruit, a young girl whose dreams and aspirations to become the best Journalist she could be were cut short when she disappeared without a trace. I have always been bothered by cases of missing people. I have felt sorrow and despair for the victims and their families. This is my chance to do something about it.

I have thought what if it was me or a family member? I would never want to be forgotten. Like our casualties of war and this is a war against predators and against evil. All those who assist us in bringing to light each case are people who join together to remember and speak for those who cannot speak, we seek the truth and we seek justice. –Cubanarama

“If we really want to solve the Jodi Huisentruit case we have to get down and dirty, step on some toes and get personal. By first beginning to bark up the right tree.

Police started off on the wrong track and allowed themselves to get steered in the wrong direction by false police reports that I belive were deliberate in order to get the heat off those responsible.”
