Description: Many factors play a role in the phenomenon of unresolved homicides, including lack of case file organization, lack of first level supervision and management, and lack of proper interrogations. This much-needed practical book provides detailed guidelines in the form of a new cold case evaluation model. It explains how to determine if a case is solvable and then leads readers through the process of organizing the case file. Once organized, the reader is guided through a process of evaluating forensic aspects of the investigation, informational pieces, and behavioral issues, putting them in a better position to design investigative strategies unique to the type of crime and type of offender.
