'Unsolved Mysteries' receives '20 credible tips'

The recent revival of the classic TV series has prompted several tips that could help to solve some of the cases.
The original run of 'Unsolved Mysteries' spanned a whole 14 seasons between 1987 and 2010 and is best remembered for its host Robert Stack (who sadly died in 2003) as well as its re-enactments of various mysteries, unexplained phenomena and unsolved criminal cases.

While the recent Netflix revival mostly does away with the re-enactments, its eerie and suspenseful exploration of six mysterious cases (including one UFO case) has proven a major hit with viewers, ranking number one in the US on the streaming service mere hours after its debut.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about it however is its potential to actually help solve the very mysteries that it is presenting. After each episode, the show asks viewers who might have any information about a case - some of which being decades old - to get in touch.
Now according to executive producer Terry Dunn Meurer, the show has already received at least 20 credible tips from viewers and it is likely there will be many more over the coming months.

"We pass them on to the appropriate authorities," she said just after the show's debut. "It's only been 24 hours. We're hoping there's a lot of people who still haven't watched and maybe this weekend they'll sit down and binge the episodes and we'll get more leads."

Incredibly, around 260 mysteries from the original run of Unsolved Mysteries were eventually solved, many of them thanks to tips received from viewers who knew something about the cases.

With any luck, some of the cases in the new series will also end up being solved.

I watched about 4 episodes of that last week.  Then I had to find a comedy to get over the sadness of it.  I am glad for the tips.  I hope they all pan out.

I think I have an episode or 2 to watch, but yeah, it was all really sad so far. I was surprised at the language, but I should have expected it from Netflix. Like you, I had to find something funny to cheer me up afterwards. In the end, I do hope these mysteries are solved. I know there's people out there hurting that may never know what happened. If nothing else, this gives them hope & maybe, just maybe somebody will speak up.
