Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $497,115)

The Missouri Board of Police Commissioners will utilize these grant funds to identify, review, and prioritize violent crime cold cases that have the potential to be solved using DNA analysis in order to determine whether biological evidence may exist that might assist in solving the cold case. Activities such as interviewing victims, witnesses, suspects, etc., will be conducted in these cold case investigations that have the potential to be solved through DNA analysis until either all samples with possible DNA evidence have been recovered and analyzed (including probative evidentiary samples, cold hit confirmatory samples, reference samples from victims and consensual partners, etc.) or the review of the case demonstrates that no biological material was present for further analysis.
