Season 2, Episode 18
Kathy Taylor, 23, was a happy, vibrant young woman with her whole life ahead of her. In October 1973, she married the dashing, gregarious 22-year-old Earl Taylor. The couple had a short courtship, fell in love and quickly wed. On April 2, 1975, Earl reportedly returned home from some errands and called out for Kathy, but got no reply. He told police he found his wife submerged in the bathtub, an electric clock radio sunk beneath her. She was declared dead from an apparent electrocution and drowning, although questions have lingered about how Kathy died and why. To this day, Kathy's 82-year-old mother Maxine and sister Bonnie still are searching for the truth. Last winter, the Cold Justice team helped Vigo County Sheriff's Office Captain John Moats and Detective Eric Fell in the investigation of the 1998 murder of Erika Case, and in January, Clint Mackey, who'd been a prior person of interest, was arrested for Erika's murder after giving a detailed confession. Cold Justice and the Vigo County Sheriff's Office are teaming up once again, and Captain Moats hopes they'll be able to resolve what really happened to Kathy. After almost 40 years, this will be the oldest case the Cold Justice team has taken.
