When Gloria Hampton walked into Charles McCully's office in the summer of 2010 with a story stranger than fiction, the sergeant was suspicious. "I saw my father kill my mother when I was 4 years old," she said. "He put her body into an army-green bag." McCully was still skeptical. But after Gloria left, he cracked open musty boxes of cold-case files. He flipped through yellowing photographs and police reports for hours before pulling out a thin binder that hadn't been touched in years. It was the unsolved murder from April 4, 1985. And inside was a photo of a woman's body in an army-green bag. Miami New Times has the story.
