Former Buffalo cold case detective now writes murder mysteries

If you searched Buffalo for someone highly qualified to write cold case murder mysteries, you would have a hard time finding an author who fills the bill better than Lissa Marie Redmond.

Redmond is a former member of the Buffalo Police Cold Cases Squad who retired in 2015. Now, instead of investigating cold case murder mysteries, she writes about them.

Her first mystery novel, “Cold Day in Hell,” draws on the experiences of her 22 years as a cop – a career largely devoted to hunting down rapists, child molesters and killers.

“The true stories I experienced in police work were much stranger than anything I could come up with,” said Redmond, 47, of South Buffalo. “Even though the work could be very stressful, I met the most wonderful and amazing people. They left me with enough stories for 100 books.”

Redmond’s book centers on a talented but troubled Cold Case detective named

FBI declines to lead investigation into unsolved murder of veteran Baltimore detective

The FBI has declined to lead an investigation into the murder of a veteran Baltimore detective who was killed one day before he was due to testify in a federal police corruption trial, Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said in a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

On Nov. 15, homicide Det. Sean Suiter, an 18-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, was killed last month while conducting a follow-up to a homicide investigation, police said. While on the scene, Suiter approached a man who he saw was engaging in suspicious activity, and the man shot Suiter in the head shortly after with Suiter’s own gun, police said.
