Written by a seasoned professional with over 30 years of experience in law enforcement, Cold Case Homicides: Practical Investigative Techniques provides effective and accessible information to those responsible for investigating and resolving previously examined - but still unsolved - cold case homicides.

The book merges theory with practice through the use of case histories, photographs, illustrations, and checklists that convey essential, fundamental concepts while providing a strong, practical basis for the investigative process. It combines proven techniques from forensics, psychology, and criminal investigation, and focuses on technologies that may not have been available at the time of the crime.

This guide defines the characteristics of a cold case homicide; details various investigative methods used by law enforcement agencies; explores the actual experiences of detectives in re-opening case files; and presents current technologies such as ViCAP, HITS, and TracKRS used in the identification of cases related to the re-opened case, or its perpetrator. It also highlights technological changes that contribute greatly to law enforcement's abilities to solve cold case homicides such as computerized print technology, the specificity of DNA, and the expanding data banks that enable the linkage of previously unknown suspects to the crimes they committed.

Addressing methods particularly valuable to cold cases, Cold Case Homicides: Practical Investigative Techniques assists the investigator in being prepared, focused, objective - and successful in obtaining the truth.

Review:

"The International Association of Chiefs of Police and the National Sheriff's Association should require that every law enforcement agency in America have at least one copy of this very valuable book."
―Tom Cronin, Criminal Profiler, Commander (Retired) Chicago Police Department

"Richard Walton has successfully created a repository of information for both new and experienced cold case detectives. Drawing from his own experience as well as that of hundreds of detectives, supervisors, prosecutors, agencies and other experts, Walton developed more than just a "how to" guide; his book is a valuable resource for anyone involved with cold case investigations. ...Most importantly, throughout the book, Walton demonstrates practical application through case studies, which is how law enforcement learns best. The last chapter of the book list additional valuable resources that are available to the cold case investigator. Walton details the services available from both the public and private sectors, many of which are not as well known to law enforcement, as they should be. Cold Case Homicides: Practical Investigative Techniques is destined to be a classic in investigative literature."
―Jim Trainum , Detective, Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police, in Subject to Debate, Police Executive Research Forum Newsletter

"...I have read material written by the FBI, NCIS, and others, but none of them compare to Mr. Walton's book. Not only is it thorough and professionally written but it speaks to officers/detectives from another officer's/detective's point of view. It is the only piece of literature that I could find on the topic area that was complete and described what has been done and what may be helpful to do while working a cold case investigation. ... Mr. Walton should take pride in a book that I consider my Cold Case Homicide Bible. ...The Fayetteville Police Department has utilized this book to revise and realign the Cold Case Homicide Unit in accordance with several suggestions that I made after I read this book."
―James Nolette, Cold Case Homicide Detective, Fayetteville Police Department, North Carolina
