The Trail Went Cold – Episode 253 – Kathy Page

May 14, 1991. Vidor, Texas. 34-year old Kathy Page is found dead inside her car after an apparent crash into a drainage ditch just over 100 yards from her residence. While the scene resembles an accident, the evidence shows that Kathy was actually strangled to death before the crash was staged. Since Kathy’s marriage to her estranged husband, Steve Page, was falling apart and there were a number of suspicious actions on his part, Kathy’s family believe that Steve was responsible for her death. Out of frustration, they put up a series of billboards accusing Steve of murder and the local authorities of orchestrating a cover-up, but no charges are ever filed. Was Kathy Page killed by her husband? On this week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold”, we explore a controversial cold case which was the inspiration for the critically acclaimed film, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”.

If you have any information about this case, please contact the Crime Stoppers of Southeast Texas tip line at (409) 833-TIPS (8477).
