Colorado Gambles On Playing Cards To Solve Cold Cases
Colorado Bureau of Investigationis gambling on playing cards to help solve some of the cold cases in the state. The military has been using this program for several years now with some success and Colorado hopes to see the same results.
You may recall after the Iraqi invasion the military issued playing cards with different Iraqi officials who were on the most wanted list. The program did work as many members from Saddam Hussein's government were captured.
Over the past few years, some states have done the same thing only with victims of unsolved murders.
They put the photo of the victim on the card with some information in hopes that someone will come forward to help solve the case.
With over 1,300 unsolved murders in Colorado officials are hoping these playing cards will help close a few cases.
The cost of each deck is $1.14 and I would contact the Mesa County Sheriffs Department to find out where and when decks can be picked up.
