Unsolved Child Murders
Unsolved Child Murders: Eighteen American Cases, 1956-1998 | Emily G. Thompson
1 post | 2 read | 6 to read
An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States. Only one in 10,000 are found dead. Yet unsolved child murders are almost a daily occurrence--of nearly 52,000 juvenile homicides between 1980 and 2008, more than 20 percent remain open. Drawing on FBI reports, police and court records, and interviews with victims' families, this book provides details and evidence for 18 unsolved cases from 1956 to 1998.

Well written book, documenting many sad cold cases. I liked the fact that the author didn‘t sensationalize the stories ,but gave as much detail as possible, while also telling more about each of the kids and what they were like. There were a few cases I hadn‘t read as much about, like The Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders and the ABC murders from the 70s. Phone #s for each case are in the back. A couple have been solved since the book was written. 4🌟
