(KMOV) – Crimestoppers is trying a new approach to solving cold cases by using family photos of murdered victims.
Many families of murdered victims believe that many of the cold cases will remain unsolved and fade, even when increasing the reward value.
St. Louis crimestoppers proves to they haven't forgotten by putting pictures of the murder victims on their website. The website also shows where they were attacked and how it happened. They hope this effort will one day give closure to the families.
Crimestoppers say that less than 40-percent of tipsters claim their reward money. The callers say they don’t want the money, they just want the suspects off the street.
