With over 200K unsolved cases of the missing and murdered in the United States alone; media coverage matters. Uncovered has partnered with John Lordan of LordanArts on a new Youtube series called LordanArts Uncovered.

John is also the host of Brainscratch and Searchlight on Youtube and was featured in Netflix’s Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel documentary. Every other Wednesday, John, Rachael (Head of Case Research and Data), and Andrea (Digital Content Specialist & Case Researcher) will explore an unsolved case of a missing or murdered person. They’ll walk through the case, providing an informative overview and analyze clues left behind from surveillance footage, last known video, or audio clips.

About the Case: 

Could someone have taken advantage of Nicole’s kind heart?

​​Nicole Coleman was last seen on December 28, 2018, in Austin, TX, and her body was discovered on December 31, 2018: 3 days later. After Nicole was murdered, her father wrote in an emotional Facebook post: “Nikki, I want people to know there was a lot more to you than just the mental health issues.”

What’s Next? 

The police are asking locals to step up and help. 

Watch the gas station surveillance footage from December 28, 2018. Do you recognize Nicole, and know someone who could’ve crossed paths with her in the 2 weeks that she was living in Austin?

Moreover, investigators are asking locals to contact them if they recall seeing any suspicious vehicles in the area before Nicole was killed. It’s a tip like this that could crack her case wide-open.

The more eyes on Nicole’s case, the better. Consider sharing Nicole’s case on your favorite social media platform. Join the discussion about Nicole’s case in the Uncovered Community.
