BONUS: FBI Say No Funds Available for DNA Tests in Colonial Parkway Murders
With FBI Norfolk informing that Colonial Parkway Murders families at a meeting on January 6, 2024, that they are short $300,000 in order to test DNA and other forensic evidence in the Colonial Parkway Murders, we thought we might revisit earlier discussion of the FBI testing budget available in the Parkway case. Given how many miillion dollars the FBI and Virginia State Police have spent on the Colonial Parkway Murders investigation, we are outraged that $300,000 stands in the way of proper forensic testing in this case. This Bonus episode of "Mind Over Murder" originally ran on October 17, 2022.FBI, Virginia State Police and the Hampton Police Department announced on January 8, 2024 that Alan Wade Wilmer Sr was confirmed as a serial killer of Robin Edwards and David Knobling in the Colonial Parkway Murders in September 1987, as well as the murderer of Teresa Howell in June 1989.
