9-11 Remembrance / Cold Case Update

9-11 Remembrance

The University of South Florida has marked the ninth anniversary of the 9-11 terror attacks with a ceremony featuring a pair of first responders, including a USF student who was a New Jersey police officer at the time and a Tampa Fire Rescue lieutenant who helped search Ground Zero. This week’s University Beat on WUSF TV has the story.

Cold Case Update

From a 1967 massacre during the Nigerian Civil War to a young Jane Doe found murdered in Saint Petersburg two years later, USF forensic anthropologist Erin Kimmerle is trying to ‘warm up’ cold cases around the world. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM previews a lecture series where she and representatives from Bay Area law enforcement agencies will share their experiences, the methods they use and the challenges they face.
