The Doe Network: Websleuthing & Cold Cases with Todd Matthews

This episode had to be re-uploaded and released again due to a processing error.

Todd Matthews, co-founder of the Doe Network and former NAMUS employee discusses databases, his role as the “world’s first websleuth” and how he continues to fight for case solves. Todd first rose to prominence after identifying the Kentucky Jane Doe known as “Tent Girl”--Barbara Ann Hackman Taylor--from his home in rural Tennessee. An early adopter of internet sleuthing, he built the first unidentified persons database and has become an internationally known expert in the field of Doe cases.
