ROGERS, Ark. — A first-of-its-kind event took place at the Rogers Convention Center on Saturday, May 20.
True Crime Fest NWA is an event that helps shed light on cold cases of those who are still missing by telling their stories. It also recognizes the hard work of those that are working to solve their cases.
True Crime Fest NWA is hosted by All the Lost Girls, a nonprofit organization founded in memory of Melissa Witt. Melissa Witt was a Fort Smith native whose body was found in 1995. Her murder has yet to be solved and her case was the focus of this year's event.
