FLORIDA COLD CASE PROJECT: NEW METHODS FOR FORENSICS AND INVESTIGATIONS INTO UNSOLVED HOMICIDES

    In Florida, there are more than 500 individuals who either died alone or were recovered in public places and whose identities are still unknown. These cases represent unsolved homicides (cold cases) and individuals who died from natural or accidental causes. The goals for this initiative are to: 1) aid with human identification; 2) systematically apply a comprehensive set of methods and tools to all unsolved cases; 3) investigate regional homicide patterns; and 4) document osteological, chemical, burial and post-mortem factors about each case to develop a baseline of data relevant to the local population and natural environment in the region.
