FBI Trying To Solve a Murder From 1999… and Wants Your Help To Crack a Code!

You’ve taken so, so much from this world.  Here’s your chance to give back and be a HERO.  They might even make a movie about you.  Where you’ll be played by JAKE GYLLENHAAL or ANNE HATHAWAY.

The FBI needs help cracking a code.  And they’re reaching out to the public to help.

On June 30th, 1999, a 41-year-old man named Ricky McCormick was found murdered in St. Louis.  The only clues were two notes, written in some kind of code, that were stuffed into his pockets.

The FBI’s codebreakers haven’t been able to figure them out.  So after 12 years, they’re looking for help.  An FBI official says, quote, “Maybe someone with a fresh set of eyes [will] come up with a brilliant new idea.”

There’s no official reward if you do crack the code.  And, of course, there’s a chance it’s not even a code and it’s just gibberish.  But if you DO crack it and help them solve the murder, you’ll be nationally recognized as a hero.
