Program: Cold Case Homicide & Missing Persons

Mr. Robert M. Wells curren;ty serves on the Governors Appointment to the Colorado Cold Case Oversight Task Force. He reported the following grim statistics.  As of September 2021, in Coloreado, there are 1,351 unresolved homicides, 408 missing persons and 88  unidentified remains, (since 1970).

In 2007, the Governor signed into legislation House Bill 07-1 272, requiring Colorado to formulate a Cold Case Task Force.  It was the first state in the nation to put together a data base of unsolved homicides and missing persons.  This Task Force is statutorily responsible for reviewing general cold case homicide investigations, tactics and practices and making best practice recommendations. This sixteen-member team is required to meet at least four times each year.

A cold case is defined as an unsolved homicide of over three years. When the case hits that 3 year mark, it automatically goes into the state database.  Mr. Wells spoke about his participation in the “Parents of Murdered Children” conference. Annually parents gather to support one another, some families with a    murder conviction for the death of their child, some with no resolution. 

FOHVAMP (families of homicide victims and missing persons) is a Colorado nonprofit organization working to find, support and empower family members and friends suffering from a loved one's unresolved murder or long-time, suspicious disappearance.

On a national level, since 1970, there are over a quarter of a million unresolved US homicides.  

On August 3, 2022, the US President signed into law, The Homicide Victims Rights Act. The bill is very similar to Colorado’s Cold Case statute.  It is our hope that this can further expand data and aid in investigatory action.  When a child is murdered it is simply horrific, but when the case has no criminal resolution, it adds to a parent’s grief.  It is our hope that these state and national efforts will bring criminals to justice and support families who grieve the loss of their children through murder.
