The Cold Case Coalition is a 501(c)3 nonprofit incorporated in Utah. We arose out of a mother's need for answers 22 years after the murder of her 6-year-old daughter. Through our efforts, the case was reactivated and is near resolution. Other cases include a rape-murder reopened when we proved the person who confessed could not have been the killer, location of missing persons, uncovering new evidence, presentation of suspect information to law enforcement, identification of bodies, etc.
The Coalition is working on more than 400 cases as well as helping others investigate cold cases on their own. We operate the country's only nonprofit forensic DNA lab. Founded by an attorney (Karra Porter), private investigator (Jason K. Jensen), and retired journalist (Tom Harvey), the Cold Case Coalition has the experience and passion to help with these cases.
We have extensive national and local media contacts. We can often help maximize public awareness of cold cases to help generate leads, or help you work with the media directly.
We have a wide range of expert consultants (volunteers or working at reduced rates), such as DNA analysts, polygraphers, sketch artists, and cadaver dogs. Other ways to investigate a cold case can be found on the Get Help For Families & Get Help for Law Enforcement pages.
