The Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) Cold Case Unit, in partnership with Colorado.gov, announced the launch of an online Cold Case Database that citizens may access via the official state Web site at www.colorado.gov/coldcase.
This is the first time the public will have online access to this data, which was previously managed in paper and computer files.
The database contains information about persons who have been verified by CBI as homicide victims, were reported missing, or whose unidentified remains have been found in Colorado from 1970 to the present. The site also features a searchable database by type of case, county name, law enforcement agency name, victim name, physical description, and year of incident.
It also offers RSS feeds so that citizens may stay informed of case developments as the database is updated. Soon, the Cold Case Database will allow users to submit a lead or tip online to local law enforcement agencies or to the CBI.
This site was developed by Colorado Interactive at no cost to the state. The information on the new Web site has been meticulously verified by CBI over the past three years.
