On Thursday January 27, 2005, a group of three armed perpetrators entered Broadway Savings and Loan to carry out a planned heist. The group managed to steal over 2 million dollars from safety deposit boxes and cash drawers.

All 5 of the original suspects cooperated with investigators and provided statements and fingerprints. Detectives collected evidence and followed all leads at the time. However, there was not enough evidence to confirm any suspect as the mastermind. The case went cold and the suspect responsible for the heist and three murders is still on the loose.

A year and a half later detectives got a break in the case when they arrested an infamous criminal who traffics in stolen goods. While interviewing this criminal, detectives, were able to gain valuable information about the heist. In addition, they obtained a map and cypher that was used by the mastermind in the planning of the heist. Detectives believe that the new evidence will be key to identifying the mastermind, seeing justice be served, and bringing closure to all those affected.

I love these types of investigative games especially ones with narratives between various characters. It's great that a lot of photos were provided for locations, items, people throughout the game as it made us the realness and the close connection with the storyline. It's always a fun time when Brandon and I could turn ourselves into a character in the story after reading about their personalities. We had a blast taking turns being the suspect and the detective. The final reveal is always great when you can say: "Oh so that's why or I knew it!" Cold Case Crackers was able to give us these reactions and we look forward to cracking more cold cases with them!
