Recent Murder Still Under Investigation

Now past the three-month anniversary of the possible homicide of Edward Foreman, Foreman’s mother, Rinda Smith, is still searching for some closure.

Smith last spoke with OSBI Special Agent Todd Doyles three months ago, which he told Smith he never considers anything a cold case. But, he doesn’t have any leads or a direction to go, according to Smith. “We have received zero information about his death,” Smith said. “The OSBI gave up a long time ago due to no leads. I’m 75 years old and would sure like some kind of closure while I’m alive. I’m very grateful for any help.”
