Cold Case Q&A

The FBI reports that since 1995, more than 100,000 cold case homicides have accumulated in the United States. Homicide cases actually have the highest solve, or clearance, rates of all crimes, but it continually decreases. To wit, in 2016, the national homicide clearance rate was just under 60%, down 18.9 percentage points from 1975, according to the National Institute of Justice. From all indications, the decline will continue.
