Cold Cases

The Cold Cases on this page are unsolved homicides for which investigative leads have dwindled or otherwise gone "cold." Perpetrators, however, should not rest easy as Homicide Investigators never give up. As the times change, so, too, do allegiances among parties to these crimes. Not to mention, advances in forensic technology may yield new leads in years to come.

If you know anything about these cases, please call (801) 799-3000 and ask for a Homicide Investigator. If you’d like to remain anonymous, text or submit an online crime tip.
