Homicide Cold Cases
The NOPD Homicide Cold Case Unit reviews cases based on numerous different factors and explores how new technology and resources, (i.e. DNA, fingerprint and informational databases, etc.) might impact a renewed investigation. If the inquiry identifies new suspects, or strengthens the case against known subjects, the case is reopened. The Cold Case Squad has also aided other Departmental entities with high-profile cases on an as needed basis, and, upon request, lends its expertise to other law enforcement agencies.
Citizens can contact the Cold Case Unit or see our New Orleans Police Department Cold Case Squad Facebook Page for information about cold cases and/or to give information.
