Iowa cold case bill gets full Iowa Senate support

April 14, 2021 — DES MOINES, Iowa (KWWL) – In a 46-0 vote, Senate File 561 passed in hopes of creating a dedicated cold case unit with the Iowa Department of Public Safety.

“A similar unit existed for three years up until a decade ago, and some cold cases, as far back as 40 years, were solved,” said sponsor Senator Jeff Taylor, a Republican from Sioux County.

The bill will create a dedicated cold case unit under the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. It would consist of two special agents to pursue past killings regardless of when they occurred.

The bill will increase the cost to the DPS by an estimated $298,600 in FY 2023 and $138,400 in FY 2024.

Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers wholeheartedly supports any effort to fund the investigation of these unsolved cases. With the continuous advancements that are being made in the world of science we believe these cases should be revisited periodically in an effort to give the victim and their families the justice they deserve.
