Margie Pointer was murdered 27 years ago in New Mexico. Her case was recently profiled on the true crime show "Cold Justice".
On Nov 20, 1987, Margie disappeared in the parking lot of a hotel in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Margie lived with her son and husband who was stationed overseas in active military service at the time. On Mar 18, 2004, a forest thinning crew located her skeletal remains near Cloudcroft, New Mexico, they were identified by using dental records. In 2014, investigators enlisted the help of detectives from the TNT show "Cold Justice" to assist them in the case. The detectives located two witnesses who gave valuable information, including the fact that Margie had a heated argument with someone who was already a person of interest in the case. At the time, investigators hoped they would have enough evidence to charge that person with Margie's murder.
Thoughts? I don't know what other possible evidence investigators have on this person of interest so I can't speculate, but after 17 years in the elements, Margie's remains probably weren't of any help. So we have a witness who recalled Margie having a heated argument with someone right before she disappeared. That alone doesn't prove that person committed this murder, which is why more information is needed.
