Unsolved Mysteries leads to credible tips from viewers

Unsolved MysteriesTips are coming in for Unsolved Mysteries

Unsolved Mysteries, which debuted on Netflix on July 1, 2020, has already led to tips coming in from viewers — and investigators say there are more than 20 that are credible.

Several of the tips were in relation to the Alonzo Brooks case, in which a young man went to a party at a rented house in the country and disappeared. His body was found weeks later by his family in an area that police swear they’d already searched. With so many people at the party, investigators were hoping someone who had seen something would come forward and that’s exactly what has happened.

When the original Unsolved Mysteries aired from 1987 to 2010, thousands of leads came in and 260 of the mysteries were solved as a result.

Tips in relation to the disappearance of Lena Chapin have also been coming in. Lena was one of six sisters, and years after her stepfather Gary’s disappearance, Lena told his brother that her mother Sandy killed Gary, and along with Sandy’s new boyfriend Kris Klemp, burned his body and then spread the ashes. Sandy then hired a lawyer, who convinced Lena to keep quiet. After Lena had a baby boy and left her mother’s home to live with her boyfriend, she suddenly disappeared. Lena’s sisters believe Sandy killed Lena to keep her quiet because Gary’s daughters had filed a case in civil court, and Lena was called as a witness. Although Sandy was found guilty in civil court of killing Gary, she has never been tried in a criminal court and is currently living with her fifth husband.

Other tips have been coming in about the case of a man, Rey Rivera, who received a phone call, then ran out of the house and never returned. His body was finally found in an unused area of a fancy hotel. It appeared his body had fallen from a great height and crashed through the roof of the lower building. His death was declared a suicide, but there were mysteries surrounding the case, including the fact that his co-workers, including his closest friend, refuse to talk to authorities. Also, there were bruises on his shin that didn’t appear to have happened during the fall and his cell phone was found on the roof near the hole where his body had gone through, but it had no damage consistent with a fall like the one that killed him.

Each of the six episodes covers one mystery and six more episodes are scheduled to be added later this year.

    Who’s the new host? I didn’t even know it was back on. I don’t have Netflix

    There is no host because they didn’t want to compete with the nostalgia of Robert Stack. It’s done really well though. I’m glad tips are coming in. I think it’s a really important show.

    I’ve watched a few of the episodes so far and I’m so happy to hear there’s new leads & information coming in. Hopefully these will help resolve the cases & the families can get some solid closure.

    I certainly hope the case of the French family gets resolved by finding the person responsible or his body! Despicable!

    I hope they all get solved, each one for different reasons. I especially hope that kid gets his mother’s ashes. The step dad made my blood boil. And yeah, the French family. I hope that guy gets caught. He is cold, calculated and evil. And so much for his co-workers saying he had a bad back. For all we know, he was so manipulative he was probably able to convince his kids to dig under there.
