Figured despite the sad news we've learned about Lifetime cancelling AMW (for the time being), we would get back to discussing cases. And this Monday will mark the 25th anniversary of the murder of April Marie Tinsley in Fort Wayne, Indiana. One of the highlights of AMW's first (and only?) season on Lifetime was although they didn't solve it, they impressively breathed a lot of new life into this very cold case. That's what makes this current cancellation so sad since AMW appears so close to solving this mystery.
The following is her description from her AMW.com profile
April Marie Tinsley was like many other 8-year-old girls, spending her days with friends and playing outside. But on Good Friday, April 1, 1988, someone took her innocence, and her life. Investigators have released new evidence which we've uploaded to the "Media" tab of this case file, and are asking for your help in identifying and arresting her killer.
The first time Tinsley's case aired on Fox it generated around 700 tips. The August 24th, 2012 airing led to an addition 70 tips. That means around 800 tips. Lifetime needs to un-cancel AMW so they can finally close this case.
Who do you think April Tinsley's killer may be?
