Cold Cases

The Investigative Bureau also oversees cold cases. Cold cases are crimes that remain unsolved and all viable leads have been exhausted. These cases are usually unsolved missing person cases, unsolved homicide cases or unsolved sexual assault cases.

Cold cases are never inactivated, but resume when new evidence comes to light. That might mean a witness coming forward with new information, new evidence such as DNA results that have become available due to newer technology.
