Someone Knows… Is it you?
Are you the key to solving one of these heartbreaking cases?
We don’t know what we know. The mention of a name, a distinct scent unearthing a memory long buried, a shared reminiscence with someone who reveals that tiny detail you’d forgotten—these are the things that spark our recollections. The sharing of a seemingly insignificant detail locked in our episodic memory could trigger a landslide of leads for investigators.
According to a 2019 publication on the Office of Justice Program website (ojp.gov), 250,000 murders in the U.S. remain on the books as unsolved. With a clearance rate hovering just below 60% each year in homicides, much less in those of minorities, the odds of solving these crimes diminish. A&E’s Cold Case Files states that less than 1% of cold cases ever get solved.
This book highlights 52 of the more than 150 possible unsolved deaths and disappearances in South Dakota in the hopes that they might garner some much-needed attention, perhaps some leads.
Someone knows. Maybe it’s you.
