Cold Case Unit

The Cold Case Unit was instituted in the winter of 2022 to assist the Department with unsolved homicide cases that have gone unresolved for several years. The unit will look at these cases with a new perspective and use new forensic technology that may not have been available when these crimes occurred.

The Department hopes this new Unit will help to identify a suspect or suspects, bring forth charges, and ultimately try suspects in a court of law. Victims' families need resolution and to receive the justice they have long waited for.

Anyone with information regarding a case that has remained unsolved for several years can email the Cold Case Unit at 

The unit asks you to provide contact information in the form of an email and cellular phone number or another form of contact that detectives can reach out to you should they need more information or clarification.

Should you wish to remain anonymous, you may contact Abilene Crime Stoppers at (325) 676-8477 (TIPS)
