Families Band Together To Solve Unsolved Cases


Group Wants Witnesses To Come Forward, Help End Mysteries

October 4, 2008

KANSAS CITY — A group of family members of victims of abductions or unsolved homicide cases are banding together to make sure that their loved ones aren’t forgotten.

Group members said their lives have been consumed with finding answers to the cases.

“Every time you turn on the news, you hear of something like this,” John Frishman said. “We just want whoever’s out there to turn themselves in and do the right thing.”

Frishman and his wife joined the cause after their nephew, Jeff Rodgers, was killed on April 9. His killers were never caught.

For the families, the right thing to do now is to keep pushing for attention, they said.

“It’s exhausting every day just to be able to find the resources just to be able to do so,” Becky Klino said. “If it’s not constantly reminded, you tend to forget. For us as the families, we never do.”

Klino’s son, Branson, 20, vanished from Skidmore, Mo., in 2001.

“My son’s killers are still walking the streets. There were hundreds of people who saw what happened, but nobody wants to talk,” Misty Kirwan said.

Anyone with information about these cases or any others are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 816-474-8477.
