Twana Smith – 7 of Clubs, Connecticut

And for decades, her case sat unsolved, gathering dust… even as detectives found the keys to unlock mysteries from the same era. But after years of dead ends, investigators now believe they’re on the brink of a breakthrough… they just need a final push over the finish line.
