Kathy Page

Vidor Police Chief Rod Carroll told TV crews that he and his staff are renewing efforts to solve the cold case murder of Kathy Page, a young mother killed in 1991. Although the murder is a decades-old crime, Kathy’s face and the facts surrounding her death have never been far from the mind’s eye – or the eyes of motorists who travel along I-10 between Beaumont and Vidor. For years, Kathy’s father has paid for billboards to adorn the side of the highway for all to see.
