Schuylerville alumna works to solve cold cases
Jan. 7, 2018
A Schuylerville Class of 2015 graduate is interning with The College of Saint Rose Cold Case Analysis Center, working on true cold cases. Raegan Woodcock is currently a senior at The College of Saint Rose, majoring in forensic psychology. She was one of a small group of students selected for a one-year internship at the Cold Case Analysis Center, the only center of its kind in New York state. As part of the internship, students in criminal justice, behavior and law, forensic science and forensic psychology degree programs are trained in cold case investigation and volunteer to assist local law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in solving these cases. All of this is done under the guidance of faculty and in partnership with the American Investigative Society of Cold Cases. Woodcock is currently assisting in the Case of Suzanne Lyall, a SUNY Albany undergraduate who went missing in 1998.
“I hope to gain direct first-hand experience with investigative work helping families find closure,” Woodcock said. “Working with a victim’s family is very humbling, knowing we are making a difference, even if it’s a very small difference.”
Woodcock will graduate in May with a bachelor’s degree in forensic psychology. She plans to attend graduate school and hopes to work with victim’s families in some sort of capacity in the future.
