CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A nationally-syndicated television show that re-examined the 23-year-old cold case murder of a Guernsey County teenager is set to air Friday night.
During the first several weeks of June, investigators from TNT's "Cold Justice" assisted the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office with the case of 17-year-old Robin Stone. Kathryn Vaughan, executive producer of "Cold Justice," told AVC News on Friday morning that she believes investigators made great strides on the case during their collaboration:
Stone left home on August 27, 1991, to study with a friend, but never reached her destination. Her vehicle was found abandoned near a vacant house on Claysville Road a short time later, but Stone was nowhere to be found. The bodies of Stone and of her unborn child were found four months later by two deer hunters in Westland Township.
Vaughan said that she was personally affected by Robin's story:
Over the year-and-a-half history of the program, the "Cold Justice" team has helped local agencies secure four confessions, eight indictments, 15 arrests, two guilty pleas and a 22-year prison sentence for murder.
To date, no arrests have been made regarding the death of Stone and her child; however, Guernsey County Sheriff's Detectives say persons with potential knowledge of the crime, never before interviewed, have been questioned and have brought investigators closer to solving the case.
The "Cold Justice" episode regarding the Robin Stone case, entitled "Other Side of the Tracks", is set to air tonight on TNT at 9:00 p.m.
