Following the release of the first two seasons in July 2020 and October 2020, Netflix claims the show's team has received over 5,000 tips about the cases featured in the series. In fact, renewed interest in the investigation into one case - Alonzo Brooks' death - even encouraged the FBI to reopen the case.

Anyone who has information about cases highlighted on the programme can submit a tip through the Unsolved Mysteries website.
