Cold Cases

Cold cases are handled by the Lakewood Police Department Persons Division. Detectives re-investigate unsolved homicides, sexual assaults and suspicious missing person cases to bring to justice the perpetrators of these crimes. Advances in forensic science and DNA analysis are valuable tools in case resolution, but cold cases remain the most challenging that investigators face. 

The Persons Division also works to provide answers and resolution to families of victims. Victim advocates provide case status information to families, work to ensure their constitutional due process, and extend access to a variety of victim services. 

The Lakewood Police Department seeks your help in providing information. Over time, witnesses may have changed their relationships with suspects. Sharing information with law enforcement is often the key to cold case resolution. See summaries of unsolved cold cases by visiting the Colorado Bureau of Investigations

If you have information about any of the listed unsolved murder and missing person cases, please contact the Cold Case Hotline.
