There is hope for unsolved cold cases, murders when law enforcement continue to work on a case, even after ten years.
Dawn Brossard was reported missing on Oct. 25, 1997, in Wisconsin.
Hardly a surprise that David Brossard, her estranged husband, was the last person to see Dawn alive. As in most of these cases where there is a pending divorce or abuse in the relationship, you don't have to look very far for the person responsible.
David at the time spoke with law enforcement acknowledging he spoke with Dawn in the parking lot of the State Financial Bank in Burlington, where she worked. Dawn's car was found locked in the parking lot.
In July 2003, nearly six years after Dawn was reported missing, recreational scuba divers found her body in the bottom of Geneva Lake, according to authorities
According to reports, the body was found in 120 feet of water, wearing the clothes she had on when she disappeared.
The keys to her car were in her pocket.
Sheriff's department investigators later revealed that they believed Dawn was murdered, but they declined to comment further at the time.
David offered to take a lie detector test and allowed police to search both their home and his truck, according to reports at the time, but the searches turned up nothing suspicious.
A New York City FBI team of 12 divers came to Williams Bay in September 2005 to help with the investigation.
