“These cases have gone unsolved for so long, it feels like the end of the road,” he said. “But as long as law enforcement continues to pay attention to these victims, then there’s hope.”
The first edition of the cold-case cards came out in 2008. They’ve yet to result in a solved case, Garrison said, but they have generated some valuable leads.
The hope is that the information on the cards will jar an inmate’s memory about a case or provide a clue that, when combined with other information, would provide the break investigators need to solve the case, Garrison said.
The cards aren’t for public sale, but the images of each card can be found online at the Department of Correction website; the link is www.in.gov/idoc/2826.htm.
The DOC is also asking anyone with information about any case in the deck, or any other cold case, to call the Indiana Indiana State Police Hotline at 1 (800) 453-4756.
