DES MOINES – Gone Cold: Exploring Iowa’s unsolved murders is a year-long collaborative effort by Iowa news organizations to revisit some of the most brutal and mystifying homicides in Iowa’s history.

It is our hope that by sharing these stories with a broad audience, justice will come for some of these victims.

Each week for the next year, Iowa news organizations will explore cold cases – those that law enforcement no longer has any clues on which to follow up. A case can go cold weeks, months or even years after the death.

And it can be reopened if new evidence is introduced. There is no statute of limitations on murder.
