What is the Jerry Don Humphrey case?
Forty-year-old Humphrey was found shot in cold blood in his own bed by his father-in-law on the morning of December 22nd, 2003, when his father-in-law went to wake him up for work. Humphrey, who worked at night, was alone in the house and Humphrey's wife and two young children were not at home at the time of the shooting. With no signs of forced entry and no signs of anyone fleeing the scene or any witnesses coming forward or even anything being taken from the house, this case soon went cold.
Humphrey's family did not stop fighting for justice particularly his sister Rita Humphrey, who has been actively trying to help authorities move forward in the case. In a Facebook post, she provided names and contact numbers for investigators in an attempt to make progress. She noted: “My brother was killed in his home dec 22, 2003, I've been trying to help Stafford Police Dept advertise this Cold Case, if you could air this I would appreciate it so much. The person or persons responsible need to be caught! Needless to say Christmas has not been the same!”
Siegler and investigator Abbey Abbondandolo in the latest season of 'Cold Justice' will help the Stafford police, dig deep into the unsolved homicide to see that justice is done.
