REEVES COUNTY, TX – The new Reeves County Sheriff, Art Granado, is bringing new hope to families who are still in the dark over tragedies that have not been solved.
"We're trying to open those old cold cases,” said Reeves County Sheriff Art Granado.
Case by case, detectives and deputies are preparing to find answers to these mysteries that still linger on.
“We’re trying to figure out, see and come up with new information or if somebody missed something” said Investigator Javier Contreras.
They’re tracing back through an unnumbered amount of cold cases in Reeves County, while starting the search for suspects and the missing all over again.
“For example the one that we're fixing to reopen is the one from Balmorhea. She's been missing now for a few years. No body knows what happened to her,” said Granado.
One of those cold cases they’ll open again includes missing 16-year-old girl Monica Carrasco.
The Balmorhea teenager was reported missing the morning of October 2nd, 2003, from a home she was living in with her aunt and uncle.
Stories like Carrasco are left with untold endings. Granado says it's time to bring an end for the families and friends.
"You know we got to give those families some satisfaction, some closure," said Granado.
