Cold-case playing cards bring new leads

Posted: Tuesday, May 26, 2009

EVERETT, Wash. - Some laughed, recounting funny stories and happy memories. Others cried when they talked about what was taken from them. Many unleashed angry words for killers who walk free. Some said they hold out hope for answers and a few believe they'll never know what happened.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office last year created the cold-case cards featuring 52 unsolved homicides and missing persons cases dating back to the 1970s.

The cards were distributed in jails and prisons in an effort to solicit new leads in stalled investigations. A $1,000 reward is offered to inmates who step forward with information about a killing or disappearance.
