“Unsolved Philadelphia” To Premiere This Weekend; Liliana Acevedo Vigil Tonight
Help solve a murder. Help get killers off the streets.
“Unsolved Philadelphia,” the crime solving show produced by Life Media Films and featured in the recent PW cover story “To Catch A Killer,” premieres this weekend. The first episode will be shown Saturday, November 6th at 7:00 PM on Philly’s public access channels: 66 & 966 on Comcast Cable, and 29 & 30 on Verizon Fios.
The show seeks to open up old homicide cases and ask viewers to phone in tips that could lead to the arrest of a murderer. “People don’t want to talk to police,” says Life Media founder Grady Jones. “Our hope is they will talk to us.”
Meanwhile, family members of Liliana Acevedo are hosting a vigil tonight at 2nd and Erie Avenues from 5:30 to seven p.m. Last May Acevedo was killed by a hit and run driver who is still at large. The case will be featured on the first episode of “Unsolved Philadelphia.”
