In many cases of missing & unidentified persons, the media has helped in cracking many of these cases. But what is interesting is that many celebrities are oddly quiet about this subject.
Now there are exceptions. Harry Potter Author J.K. Rowling posted a large reward for the recovery for Madeline McCann who went missing from a resort in Portugal ten years ago. Actress Winona Ryder did the same when Polly Klaas went missing in a home invasion from her California home in 1993. Even former World Boxing Champion Riddick Bowe offered reward money to help find a missing child before Bowe’s life would fall apart when he kidnapped his own wife and kids.
While the MeToo movement rages in it’s fight to punish sex offenders in Hollywood and the PoliticalSphere, unsolved cases and fugitives remain largely ignored.
Rosie O’Donnell can rage on twitter about her hatred about President Donald Trump. Actress Rose McGowan trash and belittle people in Hollywood for ignoring and working sexual deviants. Mark Ruffalo (whose own brother is a victim of an unsolved killing) will talk about various social causes while rappers like Snoop Dogg and Beyonce will promote their own music and products.
All these followers on twitter and other social media. Maybe one of them might be a relative or friend of one of the thousands of Jane or Jon Does. Or maybe they know information about unsolved killing that could bring justice to a family.
There are a lot of people tired of celebrities political views and opinions. But they have exposure and for certain things there are no liberal or conservative way of looking at things. Just right and wrong.
Sadly, social media is now about putting down people, something which even this blog poster has been guilty of a few times.
Imagine if our own President or other famous celebs tweeted out missing person cases or even Unidentifieds?
How much needed attention would bring to an epidemic in this country?
The ones that have no voice would have a big voice in getting them found, named and receiving justice.
It is often regarded as one of the modern wonders of the world. The Niagara Falls which consists two wide and large waterfalls in both the United States and Canada.

In 2008, a Connecticut Newspaper questioned a Detective about the similarities in the murder of a still unidentified murder victim nicknamed Peaches and that of Jessica Taylor and another unidentified murder victim (nicknamed Cherries due to a tattoo on her remains).
Police did not see a similarity.

They are all believed by Law Enforcement to be victims of the Long Island Serial Killer.
