Can Facebook help solve cold cases?

CATAHOULA Parish - Social media is the fabric of a lot of our lives but it also is playing a crucial role in solving crimes. NBC 10’s Crystal Whitman shows us how one family is counting on a Facebook page to right a Catahoula Injustice.

Catahoula Injustice is renewing focus on cases that have remained unsolved in the parish. Back in 2011, NBC 10 News covered the civil rights complaint that the family of Brandon Beard filed against his school district, claiming one of the school employees let him get off a school bus completely naked.

Now the family is hoping to get the word out about other unsolved mysteries in the community in hopes of creating new leads.

In 2017, Duell Moreland was murdered. No arrest has been made as time has went by in agony for Duell’s family. Frustrated and tired, they took their passion for justice to the Catahoula Injustice group. “With the attorney general’s office, we can’t seem to get anywhere with them. In fact, they have closed the case until they get new evidence,” says Kim Tiffee, Duell’s mother.

NBC 10 News has been following the murder case. The Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office says they will not stop their investigation until the case is solved.
