Unresolved homicides

Our Cold Case Review Unit was set up to pursue those who have avoided initial detection for homicide. Working with the police, the unit created the first comprehensive database of unresolved cases, with the information constantly updated. The unit also keeps under review cases that might be considered under double jeopardy legislation, which introduced some exceptions to the legal rule that normally excludes an accused being tried twice for the same offence.
