The Lancaster man who was one of the last people to see Deborah Cole alive still has $2,500 in reward money to offer for information about her death.
The Lancaster News ran an article last week about the July 9, 2000, death of Cole. The case, which hasn’t been solved, was featured in the newspaper’s ongoing series focusing on cold cases.
Franklin James said he was Cole’s boyfriend at the time of her death. He said he dropped Cole off at a friend’s house in the Midway area shortly after midnight on July 9 and never saw her again.
