Every case is the most important to someone. The Cold Case Unit for KCSO continues to investigate every unresolved case until a resolution is obtained.

Investigation Never Stops

The Cold Case Investigation Unit was established in February 2008 to reconsider unsolved homicides by re-examining the case file, re-interviewing witnesses and suspects, and reprocessing old evidence by applying modern innovative technology. The unit has worked to digitally upload all documents, audio and video recordings, photographs, and miscellaneous items in each case file, making it more accessible in both a paper and an electronic format.
