FBI hopes social media helps solve NM cold caseFBI hopes social media helps solve New Mexico sex torture case, cites Whitey Bulger as example
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) ' The FBI is banking that images collected during a notorious New Mexico sex torture case will spread via social media and help solve a nearly two-decade-old case.
FBI spokesman Frank Fisher said Wednesday that investigators hope images recently posted on the FBI website will be reach families of victims who might recognize the clothing or jewelry and contact authorities.
The images are of evidence collected during an investigation of David Parker Ray, a man convicted of sexually torturing his victims who boasted about killing them. No bodies have been found, although the FBI said Tuesday that a leg bones were recently discovered in New Mexico's Elephant Butte.
Ray died in 2002.
Fisher said a similar social media campaign helped authorities capture notorious gangster James "Whitey" Bulger.
