Crews were seen at the grave of Alonzo Brooks Tuesday morning as law enforcement officials dug up the body of the Unsolved Mysteries subject. Brooks, 23, was found dead in 2004 after attending a party in LaCygne, Kansas with several of his friends from school. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the case led to it being featured in one of the episodes of Netflix's new Unsolved Mysteries reboot.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has since reopened the cold case and has listed it as a hate crime as federal officials continue to investigate the murder. The FBI is also offering a massive $100,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of Brooks' murderer.
