Crimes Still Remain Unsolved In Nevada

Crimes often go unsolved. Even some horrendous crimes that ignite public outrage can go cold and disappear from the focus of the public. Nevada has quite a few of these cold cases. We will share some of these with you.

The first case concerns a robbery at the now late and imploded Stardust, a casino with a dark mob history. But, aside from this aspect, in 1992,  a former cashier at the Stardust was able to whisk away half a million dollars. Keep in mind robbing a casino is about as difficult as ripping off Fort Knox. Security is incredible.

The successful heist was accomplished by Bill Brennan. While on his lunch break he grabbed the cash and chips and disappeared. There is some speculation that there was an accomplice who later killed Brennan. Neither of them were caught and the case is still unsolved.

The next cold case is about a murder, the murder of Teri McClure. According to Only In Your State:

Terri McClure disappeared after leaving her son Tim’s wedding in Lake Tahoe to return to her home in Reno on January 14, 1983. She was behavior after the murder, including canceling her credit card before she was known to have disappeared. Also, Terri had taken out a $10,000 life insurance policy with Tim as the co-beneficiary a few months earlier.

Tim was arrested after his case aired on the television show “Unsolved Mysteries,” but the case was dismissed when the D.A. declined to prosecute. Some of Tim’s family members have publicly stated they believe he is guilty.

One other interesting case involved the murder of Tupac Shakur. He was shot while at an intersection in Las Vegas. Another car pulled up along side his and fired the fatal shot. Who did it and the motive is still unknown.
