Going Public: SEMO Professor and Students Working to Solve Second Cold Case

Southeast Missouri State University

If you are interested in cold cases and enjoy watching "Unsolved Mysterties" this interview may be just for you. Dr. Jennifer Bengtson is an Associate Professor in the Department of History & Anthropology at Southeast Missouri State University.

She and some of her students are once again working on solving a cold case by identifying a set of human remains recovered in Cape Girardeau County in 1980. This comes on the heels of a successful case they recently solved thanks to some cutting edge methods.

Bengtson spoke on the television program "SE Connect."
