“It’s alive!” ~Dr. Frederick Frankenstein

This may be hard to believe, what with all the ‘CSI’s’ and ‘Criminal Minds’ out there leading us to believe all homicides[i] are solved[ii] in less than 60 minutes including commercials…but out of the 12,879 committed in the United States in 2014 alone, 4,572 (35.5%!) of them went unsolved.[iii]

Roughly over 200,000 homicide cases have gone cold since 1980!

It gets worse.

In 2014 alone…

  • 52.6% or 570,792 of violent crime
  • 61.1% or 61,223 of rape
  • 70.4% or 209,664 of robbery
  • 43.7% or 294,840 of aggravated assault
  • 79.8% or 5,997,378 of property crime
  • 86.4% or 1,359,555 of burglary
  • 77.0% or 4,082,686 of larceny theft
  • 87.2% or 557,872 of motor vehicle theft
  • and 78.30% or 33,308 of arson

…cases have gone unsolved[iv]!
