Tolland County to announce cold case task force


VERNON, Conn. (WTNH)– Decades after three young girls went missing near the Vernon area, the Vernon Police Department and Tolland State’s Attorney Matthew Gedansky will announce the creation of a cold case task force Thursday to look into the disappearances of three teenage girls. Lisa White, Janice Pickett and Debra Pickler went missing in the early 1960’s and 1970’s.

The council is set to meet Thursday morning. The Chief State’s Attorney’s office has rehired Michael Foley as a consultant. The former Connecticut State Police detective spent years investigating some of the missing girl cases while he was on the Eastern District Crime Squad. The FBI is also expected to pitch in, even though there will not be an agent assigned to it.
