The passage of HB07-1272 in 2007 created a Cold Case Task Force in Colorado in order to devote more resources to solving homicides and missing persons cases that have remained unsolved for a substantial amount of time. To aid in the effort to solve these cases, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation as created a Cold Case Files database, where the public can search for and read about unsolved homicides and missing persons. Each entry in the database has information about who to contact if you have any information; also, most cases include photos and other descriptive information. Another resource on unsolved cases is the Denver Post Cold Case Blog. By putting their names and faces on the web, law enforcement is hopeful that a greater number of these cases will be solved. For more information on the work of the Cold Case Task Force, read their Annual Reports, available in print and digitally from our library.
