Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $280,453)
The City of Portland seeks funding to continue to review the remaining 157 "open" homicide cases going back to 1976, and to submit potential DNA evidence to the Oregon State Police Crime Lab for analysis. Each unsolved homicide has a family or loved one waiting for answers, a community waiting for resolution and a police agency seeking to hold those responsible, accountable for their actions. These murders have gone unsolved for a variety of reasons including the exhaustion of tangible leads, limited technology to test collected evidence and lack of resources to fully investigate the crimes.
