Kelly Siegler



In towns across America, both large and small, there are thousands of unsolved murder cases that have gone cold. With the right resources, though, it is possible that many of these cold cases can be re-opened and solved, bringing dangerous criminals to justice and providing closure for the families of their victims.

In TNT's Cold Justice, Kelly Siegler, a former Texas prosecutor for 21 years who has successfully tried 68 murder cases, and Yolanda McClary, a former crime scene investigator who worked more than 7,000 cases in her 26 years at the Las Vegas Police Department, are putting their vast knowledge and experience to work helping local law-enforcement officers and families of the victims get to the truth.

With a fresh set of eyes on old evidence, well-honed interrogation skills and access to advanced DNA technology and lab testing, Siegler and McClary are determined to help bring about a legal and emotional resolution. Taking on a different unsolved murder each week, they work alongside local law enforcement, as they together carefully re-examine evidence, question suspects and witnesses, and chase down leads in an attempt to solve these cases, bring justice to the criminals and some closure for the victims’ families.

JOHNNY BONDS


Johnny Bonds is a retired Homicide Detective from Houston, Texas. Johnny grew up in a small town in Kern County, TX. He started his career in Law Enforcement in 1967, and became the youngest Detective promoted to the Homicide Division at the age of 25. He spent 8yrs in the Homicide Division and has worked in other distinguished divisions such as Fugitive Detail, Internal Affairs, and SWAT.

Johnny's career case was the gruesome triple homicide of the Wanstrath family in 1979. After refusing to believe the crime was a murder-suicide, he wouldn't give up until it was solved. Johnny became knows as "The Cop Who Wouldn't Quit", and was immortalized in a book by the same name.

In 1988, Johnny attempted to take an early retirement, but after taking up odd jobs in construction he quickly realized that the only thing he's really good at is being a cop. So Johnny rejoined the force and began working for the Harris County District Attorney's office as an Investigator. That is where he met Kelly Siegler in 1989, when she was a fairly new Prosecutor. They worked closely together in the Special Crimes unit, where Johnny was Kelly's Primary Investigator.

Of Johnny's 41yrs in law enforcement, 36 involved working murder cases. He can easily say he's worked on over 1,000 murders and spoken to hundreds of killers.

Johnny Bonds' specialty is interrogations; it has often been said, "If Johnny Bonds can't get someone to talk, no one can."
