April 23, 1986 Kathy Engle vanished from Shepherd Mall in Okalhoma City. Her murder has never been solved.
The Cold Case series is my favorite of all the videos we shoot at OPUBCO. The Oklahoman’s Ken Raymond writes the stories for the print side. Then he goes several steps further by working with the video crew to set up interviews, provide sources and lead interviews. Paige Dillard writes for video and picks out the video and sound bites. Tanner Herriott shoots and edits the video.
Det. Kyle Eastridge from the OKC PD has been tremendously helpful and willing to go on camera for this series. Having that level of insight and expertise on these cases lends to its credibility. And it shows the eagerness of the police to solve these crimes.
Working with Ken is always good, here’s why: he know his material, it’s always a solid story and he’s willing to help make the overall product the best it can be.
I wish we had more time to give this series more attention. The level of effort for these is more than most anything else we do because we usually shoot, write and produce these over a 2 week period instead of just a daily turn.
