BRAZOS COUNTY, Tex. (KBTX) - An unsolved murder in Brazos County being featured on a National Geographic documentary is airing Monday night.

The Virginia Freeman case is being featured on National Geographic Explorer. The episode airs at 9:00 p.m.

Freeman was a real estate agent in Bryan/College Station. She was murdered in December 1981. No suspect has ever been arrested. It is Brazos County's oldest unsolved case.

In May, Brazos County Sheriff's Office investigator Kenny Elliot recently traveled to Arizona and South Carolina to interview witnesses in a homicide investigation.

Back in April, The Brazos County Sheriff's Office released a sketch Tuesday of a suspect in a 36-year-old unsolved murder case.

Sheriff Chris Kirk said the department used a company called Snapshot to create the sketch. The company uses DNA to recreate a person's facial features, including skin tone, eye color, hair color and sex.

Investigators used DNA found under Freeman's fingernails to send to Snapshot. The company was able to provide two sketches for law enforcement; one that showed how the suspect would look when the crime occurred and one that showed what he would look like at 70.
