Tulsa task force to raise awareness of unsolved homicides
TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The Tulsa County Cold Case Task Force and Tulsa Crime Stoppers have announced a partnership that aims to crack nearly 30 unsolved murders in Tulsa County.
The initiative, announced Thursday, will have offices set up in Tulsa Promenade Mall all through September. The campus is open to the public and has educational pamphlets and posters that detail active cases.
People are encouraged to stop by to speak with detectives and learn about the unsolved cases. A donation box will also be set up at the shopping center to help fund investigations.
About 20 former detectives from a variety of local and federal law enforcement agencies are assisting with the effort.
Tulsa Crime Stoppers Executive Director Jennifer Rush says they hope the initiative will assist victims’ families in getting closure.
