During the Mary Shotwell Little investigation, the FBI and Atlanta Police Lt. Jack Perry set their sights on her husband, Roy Little Jr.
But they could never prove he played any part in her disappearance.
However, some 30 years later, a new detective—from the homicide division’s famous “Hat Squad”—would take a crack at her infamous case.
Danny Agan and his detective could have a look into where Mary was, and further, what happened to her.
11Alive Investigative Digital Journalist, Jessica Noll, has spent the last year digging into Mary Shotwell Little's and Diane Shields' 50-year-old cold cases to find out if their cases are connected in the seven-chapter podcast series: 5 Roses.
5 Roses is part of Gone Cold—an ongoing digital series, where Noll investigates some of the most infamous and lesser-known cold cases in Georgia. She's digging for answers for the still-grieving families who long for them, and for the victims who have never found their justice.
