Bristol County Cold Case Prequel: Fall River cult murders set for Nov. 5 on Fall River Reporter



New Bedford Guide/Fall River Reporter’s Michael Silvia and Massachusetts State Representative Alan Silvia will review the Fall River Cult Murders on New Bedford Guide and Fall River Reporter’s Facebook page at 6pm on Thursday, November 5th. The episode is a prequel to the future Bristol County Cold Case show that will start in Mid-November on New Bedford Guide and Fall River Reporter. Alan Silvia is a retired Fall River Police officer and was one of the detectives assigned to the Fall River Cult Murders that occurred at the end of 1979 and early 1980. A Facebook event has been created here if you want to set a reminder.

The show is a prequel to the new Bristol County Cold Case series that will start in mid-November.

“The Bristol County District Attorney’s office currently has 92 unsolved murders from 1975 to 2017,” said executive producer and co-host of the show Michael Silvia. “Every family that has lost a loved one deserves closure. Our number one goal is to help detectives throughout Bristol County generate leads to help solve the cases we feature.”

The show will be broadcasted on New Bedford Guide and Fall River Reporter’s Facebook page and will be an hour-long. Each show will feature two cold cases in Bristol County, one recent and one old case.

Half of the cold cases are in New Bedford – 51 total. Fall River has 10 cold cases, Attleboro with six, Taunton and Westport with five, Dartmouth with four, Fairhaven, Berkley, Rehoboth, and Mansfield with two, and Seekonk, Swansea, and Marion with one each.

The show is looking to speak to family members of the cold case victims and also looking for advertisers/sponsors/supporters. Interested? Contact
