Fascination with unsolved mysteries prompts detective to form cold case group

WILLIAMSPORT – Cold cases have intrigued Kenneth L. Mains since he was a young boy.

“Back then it was the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot,” said the Lycoming County detective and former Williamsport police officer.

“Then as I grew older my curiosity for what happened grew to DB Cooper, Jimmy Hoffa and Amelia Earhart. It continues today with cases such as Jon Benet Ramsey, Dr. Jeffery McDonald, JFK assassination, Dr. Samuel Sheppard, The Zodiac Killer, Black Dalia Case and other less prominent unsolved cases.”

It’s that curiosity that this spring prompted Mains to organize The American Investigative Society of Cold Cases, a non-profit professional organization  he said that will review cold cases involving homicides or disappearances in hopes of finding new leads to follow.

“I continue to educate myself every chance I get as it relates to cold case investigations, Mains said. “I love helping people and I love investigating and reconstructing cold cases.”
