Cold Cases

The present Ottawa Police Service was formed in 1995 by the amalgamation of the Ottawa Police, Gloucester Police and Nepean Police Services. In 2000, policing in the outlying areas of the City were assumed from the Ontario Provincial Police creating a patrol territory roughly the same size as the Province of Prince Edward Island. A review of the criminal records in the amalgamation process revealed that there were thirty-two incidents of suspected homicide dating back as far as 1962.

Cold cases linger in police files
Ottawa detectives still looking for leads in unsolved killings (Last Updated: January 30, 2011 2:00am)

There is no designated cold case unit in Ottawa. Instead, all the unsolved cases — including homicides and some missing persons files — are spread among the force’s 17 major crime investigators.

It takes patience to work the cases, the investigator said. Sometimes the most minute, trivial detail can help.
What does it take? Dedication, the investigator said

“Because in many cases the (original) investigators are retired it takes some time for (new) investigators as they pick these files up to dig into them and become familiar with them,” he said.

“I don’t think it’s something that they dread, I think they look at it more as a challenge.”

But nothing is more challenging than the delicate relationships that develop with the families of victims — families waiting for answers.
