The following cases have been labeled as 'cold' by local law enforcement agencies and the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

While the leads have gone cold, these are still active investigations, so records/additional information is closed to the public.

What Makes It A 'Cold Case?'

'Cold' doesn't mean closed, or that law enforcement agencies have given up on the case. According to to North Dakota Attorney General's website, there is a specific list of criteria for a case to be classified as "cold.'

The Cold Case Unit looks at whether or not there is new evidence, if the existing evidence has been subjected to all new and advanced forensic technology, if there is/was enough evidence to file charges against the suspects previously identified in the case, and/or if there is new information available.
