Sat 8:50pm: Bazetta tries again on cold case

Coming Sunday: Old case, new perspective

BAZETTA – As Detective Joe Sofchek revisits a 21-year-old unsolved homicide case he intends to examine books of police records and coroner’s reports with “fresh eyes and a new perspective.”

Sofchek said he doesn’t view the fact that he wasn’t one of the initial officers to investigate the shooting death of John McCulley as a minus. Rather, it could actually prove to be a plus.

“It’s not that the people investigating the case weren’t doing a good job or anything. But sometimes when you bring in a new set of eyes, start all over again, go back to the beginning, you might see things that weren’t originally seen.”
