LEAGUE CITY, Texas (FOX 26) - A new statewide billboard campaign was launched on Tuesday to help solve “Killing Fields” cases.
The billboards feature the images of two women who were found dead in the Calder Road field decades ago and were recently identified.
The billboard initiative is now underway between Clear Channel as well as the League City Police Department. They hope the billboards will help bring a killer to justice.
“This is being broadcast now throughout the state of Texas on our digital billboards. The digital billboards afford us the opportunity to do these kind of program so we can broadcast this out to the Houston market, Dallas, San Antonio and El Paso,” says Lee Vela with Clear Channel. "Somewhere, someone has seen something or knows something about these cases and report it to the League City Police Department.”
Vela says this is part of the initiative that Clear Channel does throughout the area in working with law enforcement.
“Our ‘Stop Houston Gangs’ program has an 82 percent capture rate with different gang members being featured on our digital billboards in the Houston area,” Vela says. “We're proud of those statistics and how this technology can be used to aid law enforcement.”
