Bakersfield police publish cold case killings online
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) Police launched a cold case section on their website in hopes of bringing closure to the families of victims.
The section is sortable with seven tabs for time periods from "1959 and older" to "2010-current." The oldest unsolved crime on the site is from the 1970s. The newest is from 2011.
All 44 cases on the site are unsolved homicides. Dates, details and a phone number to a detective are included with each case.
Included here is a gallery for cases that include a photo, but more are available on the police website.
"If we solve even one of these cold case homicides, it's well worth the effort and well worth the time, everything that goes into it," Sgt. Joe Grubbs said Monday.
