Fake Cold Case Files:- The relaunched Unsolved Mysteries is already on the case of one of its most puzzling mysteries. On July 21, the corpse of Alonzo Brooks, whose murder was featured in the fourth episode of the series, was unearthed and the FBI reopened the investigation, deeming it a hate crime.
A family trekking in the Isdal Valley near Bergen, Norway, found the woman’s immolated corpse. Her hands were lifted to her chest in a protective stance, her front severely burnt. Personal items including a watch, an umbrella, jewelry, and empty bottles were scattered about the body. According to the BBC, investigators believed the items were placed around the corpse in a ritualistic manner.
