Police are one step closer to solving the 60-year missing-persons mystery, now that a body was found buried in the basement of the missing man’s Long Island home. With the victim identified, the frantic search for his killer begins. Following the death of another severely mentally-ill inmate in a New York state prison, a new investigative report looks for answers to why he was in the general prison population instead of a psychiatric unit. Deep in the heart of Brooklyn, the soul of Native American art and storytelling thrives! We’re sitting down with the man at the center of this culture.
