Cold Justice TV Program to Highlight 1991 Homicide in Lamar



The Oxygen television network announced recently it will feature an episode at 4pm MST on Saturday March 9th, entitled “Golden Years Gone” which highlights the unsolved case of the shooting deaths of Curly and Darlene Culberth in Lamar in 1991.

A press release details how the ‘Cold Justice’ investigator team travels around the country attempting to track new leads into unsolved homicides. The Culberths were found shot to death at the VFW Hall on Memorial Drive in Lamar in August of that year during an apparent robbery.

Investigators spoke with local suspects and although one person had been questioned several times, no formal charge of murder was ever conducted.

Prowers County Sheriff, Sam Zordel, told The Prowers Journal he and a member of his staff met with the Cold Justice investigators for a week this past September during their visit to Prowers County in filming their episode. The Sheriff indicated some headway had been made in the case and that information was forwarded to the District Attorney.  Zordel said his department is still in the process of completing the Discovery which will be given to the DA in hopes of bringing charges in the investigation.
