NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Almost 25 years after it happened, a heinous crime in Franklin, Tennessee, remains unsolved.
On Feb. 1, 1991, a driver pulled around to the small Hardee's drive-thru window, where Peggy Cox prepared to serve the last customer of the night.
According to police records, two shots were fired, and Cox collapsed on the floor. One of the bullets struck her in the head, killing her. It was her 49th birthday.
The case remains a lingering scar that has bedeviled a police department and left a family struggling to imagine life with closure.
