Welcome to the Iowa Cold Cases (ICC) website, the U.S.’s first public database to document unsolved murders and suspicious missing persons cases on a statewide basis.
The site includes victim case summaries cross-referenced by name, the victim’s city or county, the year the crime occurred or by decade. It also includes a list of cases solved since ICC launched in December 2005.
Our goal is to create public awareness about unsolved homicides and missing persons cases and present information that might help solve a crime.
ICC incorporated as an Iowa nonprofit organization in April 2010. Though we are not affiliated with any law enforcement agency, we may at times serve as a liaison between them and individuals who provide ICC with tips, leads, or other information.
All official investigations are conducted solely by law enforcement agencies that may include a combination of local, state, and/or federal authorities.
Somebody knows something in every cold case. If you believe you have information that might help solve a case, we strongly encourage you to contact the investigating agency/agencies listed on each victim’s case summary page.
Thank you for taking time to visit our site.
Listed below are upcoming cold case anniversaries and, where noted, birthdays the victims would have celebrated.
