Cold Case Files
The Monterey Police Department is actively pursuing our unsolved "Cold-Case" homicides. Although many of the leads have grown cold and witnesses memories tend to fade, advances in evidence processing have helped tremendously in the continued investigation of these crimes. The use of DNA testing on our old cases has resulted in arrests for crimes committed decades ago and has also eliminated many possible suspects.
While physical evidence is an important tool in the solving of all types of crimes, we still believe that there are people in and around the community that may have information critical to the resolution of some of these old cases. We want to talk to you! Your information could be the key piece of information we are waiting for.
All contacts in reference to the unsolved cases will be handled confidentially, but we do want to speak with you. The following links contain some of the unsolved homicides in the City of Monterey. Our department as well as the surviving members of these crimes, the victims family and friends, hope that if you have information on any of these cases, you will contact our Investigations Division at the locations provided in the cases.
