Cold Case Homicide Unit

The Cold Case Homicide Unit was established in May 2008. Currently there are (2) investigators assigned to that specialized unit. The homicide division works closely with the Medical Examiner’s Office in determining the cause of death as well as the District Attorney’s Office in prosecuting offenders. The Cold Case Homicide Unit is responsible for reviewing and prioritizing more than 95 unsolved homicide cases dating back to 1931. This review process takes into account solvability factors which include the availability and condition of evidence, previously identified witnesses and suspects, as well as the impact the particular case has had on the community.

The Featured Cases currently listed on this web site were randomly chosen to ensure the public is kept aware of them and to ask for information and assistance in apprehending those responsible. The families and law enforcement are aware that in each of these cases, there are people – other than the killers – who know who did this.
