5 Evansville Cold-Cases That Still Need to Be Solved!
Here are some of the most notorious cold-cases in Evansville.
With the popularity of the True Crime genre growing daily, you might be wondering what cold-cases we have here locally. Luckily, I've begun your sleuth work for you. Here are some Evansville cold-cases that still need to be solved.
The Murder of Shane Breedlove
Shane Breedlove was killed on his way home from work in the Summer of 2015. While police did have suspects in custody shortly after the murder, charges against them were ultimately dropped. This case has been spotlighted on-and-off during the past few years due to Breedlove being a beloved musician in the area. Sadly, no new developments have happened for quite some time.
The Murder of Arthur Denton
In 1991, former state legislator and prosecutor Arthur Denton was murdered in his home. According to the ISP database, Arthur Denton was found dead in his rural Posey County residence. He had been beaten and stabbed. His wife was found tied up in the basement of the home. More details about this case can be found here.
The Disappearance and Suspected Murder of Patrick King
