Delaware cold case unit turns to social media

New Castle County Police Department’s first cold case squad hopes a new Facebook page will help detectives solve some of the county’s 44 open murder cases.

“One of the things we’re trying to do is reach the community,” said Detective Brian Shahan, who is assigned to the unit, along with retired Sgt. Glenn Davis.

“That laugh. She had a laugh that would grab you from across the street, ‘Who is that?'” recalled Kelley’s mother, Lasondra Kelley.

But the sounds of joy that for 24 years her mother remembers well were disrupted by a single phone call March 7, 2014, from the young woman’s grandmother.

“She was like, ‘I’ve been trying to contact Lisa, have you talked to her?'” said Lasondra Kelley. “I haven’t talked to her,” she told her
