ABOUT UNSOLVED CRIMES
UNSOLVED CRIMES is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting families who have lost a loved one to violent crime. There are literally thousands of murders each year which languish in police files while desperate families wait hopelessly for answers that may ease their suffering. UNSOLVED CRIMES pulls these cases from the bottom of the files and moves them to the top. We start at the beginning, with no bias, and re-examine all existing evidence. With sophisticated computer technology, crime photos are enhanced for new leads, background data is gathered, and group meetings are held to obtain a range of ideas and input. We have an extensive variety of volunteers working with us, including private investigators, handwriting experts, psychologists, and legal advisors. We also believe in involving the bereaved family to the extent that they are able; experience has proven to us that bad news is easier to live with than no news. We have seen grief slowly dissipate as survivors begin to take an active part in dealing with their tragedy, rather than remaining an isolated victim.
UNSOLVED CRIMES shares all of its information with the appropriate law enforcement agency, who may use it for potential arrests and solutions. In a recent case, our information was sufficient to cause a police force to dig up the yard of a young woman who had been listed as "missing" for one year. The discovery of her body ended a year of agony and uncertainty for her family. In another case, we determined that the police had identified the correct suspect in the murder of a young girl; however, the case was at a standstill due to a lack of evidence. Through the persistent work of UNSOLVED CRIMES, enough new evidence was obtained to extract a confession from this suspect, and another family was able to begin the healing process. Our motto is: We won't let the victim die twice-once in the field and once in the file.
