There's been an arrest in one of the cold cases that Hannah Scott's been following for nearly 12 years now would be the Lindsay bomb case, and it's not an arrest. I want to make sure we we correct that it's not an arrest in the Lindsay bomb cases an arrest in a different cold case that could be Provides possibly a link to the Lindsay bomb case.
