Welcome to Iowa Cold Cases

Welcome to the Iowa Cold Cases website, the state’s most trusted database for documented unsolved murders and persons missing under suspicious circumstances.

The site includes victim case summaries that may be searched by name, city, county, year the crime occurred, and by decade. It also includes a list of cases solved since the website launched in December 2005, and unsolved cases where rewards are offered for information leading to an arrest and/or conviction.

If you believe you have information that might help solve one of these cases, we encourage you to contact the current investigating agency following each case summary.

Stay up-to-date on cases in the news or victim anniversaries by following us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thank you for taking time visit.


Changes are underway at the Iowa Cold Cases website and we’ll soon have a new look and format that includes links to updated case summary pages, cases recently added to the site, and other new interactive features to help inform and engage readers.

The site has already migrated to a new server (with the same company), that now includes both hosting and file maintenance. Pages are loading faster and the upcoming new framework will not only continue to increase speed, but provide a more friendly user experience across multiple platforms.

Thank you for your patience as we work toward releasing a more powerful, state-of-the-art website designed to quickly deliver our ever-expanding content.
