NewsChannel 3 Investigation: What happens after cold case murder arrests?

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

When police solve a long-cold murder, there’s reason for celebration.

They’re the toughest cases to crack and a cold-case arrest can bring closure to families who have waited years for justice.

But what happens after the arrests? NewsChannel 3 tracked 36 men charged with cold-case murder in the past 10 years.

Court records show more than a third of them have murder charges dropped, dismissed or reduced to something else.

Our investigation will break down the prosecutions city by city, and we’ll reveal which police department hasn’t solved a single cold case murder case in the past 10 years.

This NewsChannel 3 investigation is tonight at 5.
