Past Years

The Indiana Department of Correction, in partnership with the Indiana State Police and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, have released two editions of the “Indiana Cold Case Homicides Playing Cards”. The decks of playing cards each profile 52 unsolved homicides and missing persons cases from around the state. Each playing card features information on an unsolved murder or missing persons case and a photo of the victim.

Members of the public who would like to provide information on the victim of a cold case homicide or missing persons case, or who would like to have a case reviewed for inclusion in a future release of the deck, may contact the Indiana Department of Correction at coldcasetips@idoc.in.gov

If you have information about any case in this deck or a case that does not appear in this deck, please call the Indiana State Police  T.I.P.S. Hotline at 1 (800) 453-4756.

 

1st Edition

2nd Edition

 

3rd Edition

The card decks are being distributed throughout Indiana prisons and to law enforcement authorities, and will be the only decks of cards available for purchase in the state’s prison facilities. The aim of the project is to create an awareness of these unsolved cases in the prison population and encourage offenders to provide information that might help solve the cases.  Officials hope the cards may jar inmate memories or provide a clue that, when combined with other information, might provide the break investigators need to solve a case.


 

This deck profiles 52 unsolved homicides and missing persons. There are hundreds of other cases that are not profiled here. You might know something about these cases or you might have some information on cases not in this deck. You may think the information you have is not important or would not be helpful to the investigation. However, that information just might be the missing link that family members have been waiting years for that can solve their loved one's case and bring closure to their family. The victims depicted in this deck are someone's mother, father, sister, brother, wife, husband, or child.

                   

If you have information about any case in this deck or a case that does not appear in this deck, please dial the Indiana State Police T.I.P.S Hotline at 1 (800) 453-4756.
