Criminal: Cold Case

Cold case file
This week's episode of Criminal shares the story of a woman who becomes a private investigator to solve the cold case of her college roommate's murder.

When the Dallas Police Department fails to find the person responsible for the death of a college sophomore, her best friend steps in to solve the case. 

When Angela Samota is brutally murdered, her college roommate is recruited by police to help with the investigation. The police investigation sinks and the case goes cold, but 20 years later Sheila Wysocki feels inspired to become a private investigator to revive the search for Angela's killer.

Now Angela has her own PI agency, called Without Warning Private Investigation. In this week's episode, hear how her persistence solved the mystery of her friend's death, and in our next episode we're going to Nashville to follow her latest case.

The Criminal podcast is recorded at WUNC studios.
