I've been writing about Janteyl Johnson on whereisjanteyl.com since 2013. Today, the New Castle County Police finally added Janteyl to their list of cold cases. Although it's a good step, you may be wondering what exactly does it mean?
It means that more resources and a fresh pair of eyes will be focused on this case. In fact, many eyes—outside of NCCPD—have been focused on Janteyl since last year.
The information below is from the NCCPD website. It explains, in general terms, what criteria must be met before the Cold Case Homicide Squad re-examines a case.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children also revealed a new age-progession image of what Janteyl might look like today at age 23.
Meanwhile, I'm following some interesting information and hope to have an update soon.
If you have any information about Janteyl Johnson, please do the right thing and contact the NCCPD Cold-Case Homicide Squad. You can remain anonymous. 302-395-2781 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. What if this was your daughter? Wouldn't you want someone to come forward?
