Crime Wire Investigates: The Lover’s Lane Murders and Missing Man, Troy Jacobs

Our first segment will be the Lover’s Lane Murders. On August 23, 1990, 22-year-old Cheryl Henry and her 21-year-old boyfriend, Andy Atkinson, were brutally murdered in an undeveloped, wooded area of western Harris County in Houston, Texas. Both victims had been tied with a rope and their throats slashed. Cheryl had also been raped.

Seventeen years later, DNA evidence from semen found in Cheryl Henry’s body had been matched to DNA collected in the unsolved 1990 rape of a 30 year-old woman also in the Houston area. Investigators were then able to release a composite sketch of the suspect after talking with the rape victim.

Members of the Henry and Atkinson families will join us to discuss the case.

The second segment will be the CUE Case of the Month. Tonight we’ll discuss the disappearance of Troy Jacobs, who went missing from Red Springs, North Carolina on February 26, 1996.

You can catch the show at 9 p.m. Eastern at
