    It's really not up to the news media to investigate or re-open cold cases, they only bring news to the public when there is some to share. Occasionally these things reveal themselves over time, sometimes they need action to jumpstart them. If you look at a lot of cold cases that were reopened and eventually resolved it was because of involvement on the part of the family. Sometimes it's investing the time to find out details that were missed, or paying a private investigator to do it. A fat reward never hurts, that tends to get people talking. Relying on the piddly $5k crime stopper money or blaming the news media is unlikely to produce results. There has to be emerging news before it can be reported.

    WITN needs to get more involved with this case, because it seems to me that you are more concerned about everything else, instead of trying to get to the bottom of this. Put a little focus on this story for the family of Shawn Williamson.

    Just curious what kind of reward the family is offering? I've been noticing on a lot of shows that show behind the scenes crime solving, sometimes having a nice reward makes a big difference. Sometimes someone knows something about the crime in a round about way, but they need incentive to go forward. It can cost tens of thousands of dollars to relocate and hide from payback once they give someone up.
