Not The D.A.'s Business
I seem to be the only one that thinks district attorney investigator Mike Hislop is a bit out of line in taking over the cold case file of a woman who disappeared from the Honeydew area back in the '70s. It seems to me that the D.A.'s office, including its investigators, should be dealing with relatively recent crimes that are being prosecuted or investigating potentially prosecutable cases. Decades old cases where the main- and likely only- suspect is dead don't count.
If he wants to investigate cold- case files on his own time, like that retired guy the Times- Standard reported on a while back, that's fine with me, but not on the county's time.
