Cold Cases

New investigative techniques and scientific methods of testing evidence can help to create new leads in previously stale cases. For instance, advancements in DNA analysis, along with computer technology and the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), create a powerful tool for law enforcement officials to use in the identification of suspects.

 

The Tiverton Police Department considers a case "open" until a suspect has been identified and brought to justice.  The department examines open cases to see if new information has arisen or new investigative techniques and scientific methods of testing evidence can be applied.

 

If you have any information about the following cases please contact the Tiverton Police Department Detective Division at

(401) 625-6717.
