Case Summaries

The list below includes the names of all Iowa cold case victims of which we are aware, with links to individual case summary pages already written or in progress. The list is ongoing and not yet inclusive of all Iowa cold cases, though we continue to add names as we are notified of other open cases.

Many hours, and sometimes days or weeks, often go into fully researching and then writing these summaries. Our research and sources range from local law enforcement agencies to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation as well as newspaper and other archives and interviews with victims’ family members and friends.

If you know of a case not listed here or have information you’d like included with an existing page, please contact us with details and, if at all possible, scanned photos.

Permission to reprint a case summary — for online purposes or in print — may be obtained by writing us and including in your letter the victim’s name, how the article will be used, and the publication name/website address where you plan to use it.

Cases are alphabetized by the victim’s first name.
