Who Killed Barbara Jean? How You Can Watch the New True Crime Series

A new NBC10 series on Roku and Apple TV re-examines the murder of a four-year-old in Northeast Philadelphia more than 30 years ago. The killer has never been brought to justice.

In 1988, 4-year-old Barbara Jean Horn was abducted from her home in Northeast Philadelphia and killed. Her body was found shortly afterward, stuffed into a cardboard box around the corner from her house.

Her murder devastated her parents and terrified a generation of Philadelphia kids, who had been used to playing in front yards.

More than 30 years later, her killer still hasn't been brought to justice.

But her family has never stopped seeking it.

Now, NBC10 is re-opening this cold case. We have debuted a 11-part series called "Who Killed Barbara Jean?" It weaves archive video with new interviews with her family and law enforcement -- as well as interviews with the man who was tried twice as a suspect. We're trying to get to the bottom of one of Philadelphia's most notorious cold cases.

You can watch the first episode above.
