The Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department Cold Case Unit is responsible for investigating unsolved murders dating back to the 1950's and investigating missing person investigations. The unit focuses specifically on cases that occurred in the unincorporated areas of the County of Cook, though they are often called in to assist other suburban police agencies as well. The Cold Case Unit is staffed with a Detective Sergeant and three detectives whose mission is to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves by seeking answers and justice for the victims and their families.

Here you can find information about roughly 100 open cold cases that the Sheriff’s Department is looking for information on. We are featuring them on this website to gain information leading to an arrest and conviction of those responsible for these crimes.  If you have information about any of these cases or have information on any unsolved murder or the whereabouts of any missing person please call (708) 865-4549 or fill out the electronic tip sheet listed below. There are monetary rewards for information leading to an arrest through the Crime Stoppers of Cook County. The information you possess may bring closure and peace to those left behind. Your rewards in that regard will be eternal.
