The Trail Went Cold – Minisode 18 – Cleashindra Hall

May 9, 1994. Pine Bluff, Arkansas. 18-year old Cleashindra Hall phones her mother from her workplace to say she will be working late and might be calling again once her shift ends. Cleashindra never phones back and does not return home. Cleashindra’s boss, Dr. Larry Amos, tells police that an unknown individual picked her up that night, but troubling holes open up in his story and he displays some suspicious behavior. Even after a search is conducted of his home 18 years later, no hard evidence is found to incriminate Amos and the case remains at a standstill. In this week’s minisode of “The Trail Went Cold”, we examine the frustrating unsolved disappearance of Cleashindra Hall, a case which might only need that one crucial piece of evidence to blow it wide open.

  • Lots of things point to Amos’ involvement…his inconsistencies in story, the suspicious Dallas trip, her friend on Reddit revealing that “lots of people” saw him tearing down the flyers about her — not just her dad, his anger at what he thought was “courting” between her and Scott. Even the fact that she called her mom to tell her she wasn’t done yet could point to something. Maybe that was a sign of Amos trying to keep her there late…

    These things clearly aren’t enough to charge him or prove it WAS him, though. Maybe the babysitter’s number being the last outgoing call from the office means that they have a connection to someone Clea knew or met, and she was picked up after all. This case just needs more evidence to ever get solved.

  • Forgot to mention, her friend on Reddit also mentions that it was well known Amos had an infatuation with her, so…it doesn’t look good for him, but definitely explains why he was and still is the main suspect in this case.
