Unsolved Mysteries volume two is already bringing in ‘good and significant’ tips
The Netflix show has received hundreds since it aired
The second volume of Unsolved Mysteries may have only landed on Netflix last week, but it’s already bringing in tips about the cases.
At the end of each episode, viewers are encouraged to share information with relevant law enforcements or on the unsolved.com website – where there is a section to share tips you may have about the unsolved cases you have watched. The show’s co-creator, Terry Dunn Meurer, says new leads are already pouring in.
She said: “We’ve actually gotten close to 400 tips as of [Wednesday]”. Most notably, this includes U.S. Marshals announcing they’re closing in on Lester Eubanks, a convicted murderer who escaped death row in 1973 and is subject of the “Death Row Fugitive” episode. They’ve also doubled the reward for information leading to his capture from $25,000 to $50,000.
After the series aired, Brian Fitzgibbon of the U.S. Marshal Service told US Today: “He’s alive. I feel we’re getting closer.” He added the service has also been receiving tips, helping them fill the gaps in his disappearance.
Meurer added they have “good and significant” tips about the Death In Oslo episode, which looks at the case of “Jennifer Fairgate” – a woman who was found dead in a hotel room in Oslo in 1995, but was found to have checked in under a false identity, and police still don’t know who she actually was.
Terry Dunn Meurer said: “A lot of people are saying, ‘Why can’t you do some DNA testing on this [since] DNA has come so far?’ But apparently in Norway that’s not allowed. So Lars [Christian Wegner, the investigative reporter from in the episode] doesn’t have access to that himself, and he’s at the mercy of law enforcement on that case.”
The series also received credible tips after the release of volume one. In the first 24-hours of the first volume airing, Unsolved Mysteries had received 20 “credible” tips which were passed on to the relevant authorities. By the end it had hundreds of new pieces of information and the body of Alonzo Brooks, who was the subject of the “No Ride Home” episode, was exhumed by the FBI – 16 years after his death. It was confirmed that most of the tips about volume one were about the Alonzo Brooks case.
If you have any information about or tips regarding any of the cases in the Unsolved Mysteries series, you can submit them via the Unsolved website.
