Missing Ky. woman Brookelyn Farthing still hasn't been located after vanishing more than a month ago. Now officials have revealed that they are out of areas to search for the missing woman, which is a disheartening detail in a case that isn't even two months old yet. Is this disappearance at risk of becoming a cold case?
Brooke vanished from a home in Madison Co. the same night a fire burned up a couch and part of the area surrounding it in the home. Officials have never publicly confirmed that the house fire and her disappearance are connected, but it is very easy to speculate that it is -- especially since she still hasn't been located after so long.
Investigators on this case have also long indicated that the missing 18-year-old woman may be dead -- asking members of the community to check rural properties for "strange odors" and signs of disturbed earth. It's safe to say that the general opinion is that something bad happened to Brookelyn Farthing, but what, and will it ever be found out?
