Texas cops finally busted an 84-year-old Texas woman for murdering her hubby over 30 years ago — thanks to a TV show that helped them crack the cold case, authorities said.
The Leon County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday they arrested Norma Allbritton in her husband’s 1984 shooting death, which was revisited in 2015 by the Oxygen program “Cold Justice.”
“This truly was a team effort,” Leon County Sheriff Kevin Ellis told the Herald-Press. “Without ‘Cold Justice,’ I don’t think we could’ve progressed as we have — but they also couldn’t have done it without the LCSO staff.”
Authorities said Allbritton’s husband, Johnnie, was shot five times as he entered the couple’s home in Buffalo, which is about 100 miles southeast of Dallas.
