Because Project: Cold Case was designed to serve a specific population of victims, the families and cases that we work with must meet certain criteria.
Project: Cold Case was founded to serve families that have lost loved ones to murder in which the case remains unsolved. We saw a need and an underserved population and knew that we needed to help.
Family contact is vital for our organization. We keep in touch with families, reach out on anniversaries and other occasions, and work to answer any questions they may have.
Project: Cold Case does not solicit families to submit their cases. All cases featured were submitted by families that discovered Project: Cold Case through their own journeys.
What about other cases?
There are many reasons that Project: Cold Case cannot accept cases that fall outside of these criteria. We aren’t equipped to assist every single person and their unique situations. There are also numerous organizations that are capable of helping and we cannot replicate those services.
