News on Season 6 & Another Cruise with Kenda!

The sixth season of Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda begins August 2016.  Look for twenty new cases!

Another cruise is in the works.  Sail away with us!  Lt. Joe Kenda will be on board, along with his wife Kathy.  Carl & Iona Marino will be there.  Several old Kenda Cruise friends will be on board.  And so will I, along with my husband Bill Kenda.

Look for the trivia contest on board.  I’m writing the questions.  How much of a challenge do you want?

Cruise departs out of Ft. Lauderdale, Thursday, January 5th to Monday, January 9th, 2017.  Details are available at


New Podcasts and a Thank You!

Look for the new ID DETECTIVE podcasts beginning in August 2015.  Lt. Joe leads off with 20/20 — twenty podcasts, each twenty minutes.  They’ll appear biweekly, every other Wednesday.

ID channel promotes this series as “juicy tidbits and shocking insights” from the world’s greatest real-life detectives.  But you know my brother-in-law when he talks about his life and cases.  Expect more juice, more shock, and certainly more insight than you can get from any other of the world’s greatest detectives.

Thank you for all the comments.  I wish Lt. Joe could help each and every one of you.  I wish he could solve every cold case.  Unfortunately, he can’t. He is retired now.  Here is what he told Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette:

“If I lived another 100 years, I could not help all the people who need help.  I have no jurisdiction…I’m retired.  I am no longer an officer of the court.  Even if I wanted to, I couldn’t do it.”

We may not be able to reply individually to each comment, but we do read them all!
