TexasRangers Cold Case: Texas Ranger Brandon Bess was assigned Liberty and Chambers Counties last summer. He said, in the real world, crimes are never solved in the 45 minutes it takes a television show to put all the pieces together. Sometimes it seems as if the guilty party may never be identified. Cold cases are those crimes that have run short of information for the law enforcement agencies to follow. Some of those cases are decades old. Other much newer, but clues and evidence has played out. Ranger Bess said each Texas Rangers company has a cold case unit to help on cases where hope may be in short supply.
