Homicide Investigators spend countless hours working to solve crimes. Often the best clues and most helpful physical evidence are gathered in the hours immediately after the crime. As time goes by, cases become more difficult to solve. However, criminals often tell someone about the crimes they committed. Believing information from the public might be the missing key, we will highlight a different unsolved homicide case each month. If you have any information about the cases, please contact Crimestoppers at the number below.
