Cold Case Files

In every homicide, people are affected and many lives are changed forever. At the Greenville Police Department, we recognize that murders, especially unsolved, can be extremely difficult for family, friends and the community. We are dedicated and relentlessly pursue offenders, seeking justice for these victims of unsolved crimes.

Cold Case Review Team


By definition, a "cold case" is an investigation of a serious crime where all leads have been exhausted and the case remains unsolved. The Greenville Police Department initiated a Cold Case Review Team in January 2010. Experienced investigators and supervisors review each case, research and develop leads, and apply new techniques that may have emerged since the crime.

Help From the Public


While our team approach is beneficial, we still require assistance from the public. Please take a moment to review our cold cases and provide us with any information you may have related to these crimes. Share our Cold Case posters with your family, co-workers, and your community. This could be your chance to make a difference. Please: if you know something, say something.
