The Cold Case of Christine Gallegos - Curiosity #18


In October 1985, an 18-year-old woman was found shot and stabbed to death on a Salt Lake City street. Her murder has remained unsolved for over 35 years. Why? At best, the SLC Police Department wildly mishandled the case and neglected to follow up on even the most simple leads. At worst, they were actively covering it up to aid the city in its bid for the Winter Olympic Games. Let's dive into the cold case of Christine Gallegos. Make sure to stick around after the episode for an awesome chat with private investigator Jason Jensen.
