The Sheriff's Office has two detectives assigned to investigate about 65 unsolved homicide and missing person cases dating back to 1962. Civilian volunteers also work on the Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Team, which is part of the Major Crimes Unit.
Cold Case Cards
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Unit created a deck of playing cards and distributed them to local inmates. The Everett Herald published a story about each cold case featured on one of the cards.
Anyone with information about unsolved homicides or missing persons cases is asked to call 800-222-8477. Up to a $1,000 reward is offered. Tips also can be left on the sheriff's tip line at 425-388-3845.
Callers may remain anonymous, although tips have been more successful when callers speak with detectives, police said.
