Cold Case Playing Cards

Cold Case Playing CardsThe Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Department of Corrections (DC) and the Attorney General’s Office have teamed up with the Florida Association of Crime Stoppers to implement a new and innovative way to crack Florida’s unsolved cold cases. Each card features a photograph and factual information about an unsolved homicide or missing person case.

In July 2007, approximately 100,000 decks of cold case playing cards were distributed to inmates in the state’s prisons. The two editions featured 104 unsolved cases from across Florida.

Two cases have been solved as a result: the murder of James Foote and the murder of Ingrid Lugo

In 2008, state partners once again teamed up to develop a third edition deck. This deck was distributed to 65,000 inmates in all 67 county jails and to 141,000 supervised offenders serving on state probation. The third edition features 52 new unsolved homicide and missing persons cases.
