Congratulations, Det. Stradford

Wendellpro.jpg Det. Wendell Stradford, (former Transit guy) makes an arrest [the article has since been removed]. From the piece: “Franklin praised cold-case Detective Wendell Stradford and Assistant DA Nitin Savur for hunting down Montgomery.” This was for a 1974 murder. In some ways I think the older the better. Those cases are sadder, they are the most forgotten, and the hardest to solve. After two years, if a murder hasn’t been solved, the chances of it ever being solved goes down to .01%. Solving a 32 year old case was really beating the odds.

Good work, Wendell and everyone who worked with him. (The picture is from one of Stradford’s promotion ceremonies.)
