    Wow, this has to be the absolute best news ever to help solve and show connections for unsolved crimes. It has taken you to do what should have been made mandatory within law enforcement using VICAP. This is so fantastic.

    I'm new here and my first post. 😊
    I was so excited to see this thread!! This has been needed for so long and I'm thrilled it's finally out there.
    Thanks for all the work you've put into making this site happen. It's going to be such an amazing tool and will help and effect many lives.

    Welcome to The Murder Accountability Project!

    My first time posting anywhere, but my immeadiate thought about this incredible database is: can we find a way to filter by MO? Perhaps by NJEverCurious' idea of color coding? My thought is that if we could group some of these together by MO AND location, perhaps we could make some connections LE has been unable to connect bc of technology? Just a suggestion and I'm brand new at all of this so I apologize if it's a stupid suggestion. Great ideas and great work! Hopefully these unsolved murders can be solved for all of the families and loved ones. Thanks for your time.

    This is so awesome! What a great tool. I am having issues getting the lists of cases to come up. I can get the graphs but not the lists. It its getting hung up on "view data". In any case I will keep trying to figure it out! My sister was murdered in 1990 in Houston along with her boyfriend at the time. It remains unsolved but linked to DNA from a rape around the same time. I was trying to pull together a list of similar crimes using this tool.

    Imagine if law enforcement agencies used the resource of VICAP and this database, crimes could be potentially be solved or at least identified and classified correctly.

    I use a touchpad instead of a computer and I was wondering why the site doesn't work with it and if I have options on my touchpad?

    Do we have a site for you! The Murder Accountability Project.

    The message below is from Tom Hargrove. Mr. Hargrove is the Director of the Murder Accountability Project.

    The Murder Accountability Project is a nonprofit group based in Alexandria, Virginia, and operated by a Board of Directors that includes veteran homicide investigators, investigative journalists and homicide scholars. The project is intended to be a resource for police,
    journalists and families of murder victims who want to know more about unsolved murders in their communities. The project is provided free-of-charge and can be accessed at www.murderdata.org


    This website gives the public easy-to-use access to two datasets maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation: the Uniform Crime Report from 1965 to the present and — more useful for police investigators — the Supplemental Homicide Report from 1976 to the present. These are voluntary reporting systems, meaning local police are not required to provide any information to the FBI.

    The Murder Accountability Project, using the Freedom of Information Act, has obtained data on more than 22,000 homicides that were not reported to the Justice Department. This means the information at www.murderdata.org is the most complete data on U.S. homicides available anywhere.

    To download the four-page briefing document we give to homicide investigators, click on this link:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ForMAP2016.pdf

    In the coming weeks, we will be working with Mr. Hargrove and his incredible group of people to show you how you can use the information the group offerers for your local community

    .So much to tell you but for now please get familiar with the site. Feel free to post questions.

    Thank you,

    Tricia Griffith
    Owner/Websleuths.com
