Image of Grantee title

In FY2023, SAKI awarded the Colorado Department of Public Safety $500,000 to investigate unresolved homicide cases that involve a sexual component. Of the 1,354 unresolved homicide cases statewide, the Colorado Department of Public Safety identified 188 cases that meet these criteria. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will meet with members of the investigating agency, CBI Forensic Services, and the relevant district attorney's office to review the remaining items of evidence to determine if additional forensic testing can be done, to include forensic genetic genealogy.
