Reporter is offering a new weekly feature

“Gone Cold - Exploring Iowa’s Unsolved Murders” is a year-long collaborative effort by Iowa newspapers to revisit some of the most brutal and mystifying homicides in Iowa’s history.

Beginning this week, The Ogden Reporter will share with readers information about some of the 438 unsolved homicides in Iowa’s history. Iowa Newspaper Association members hope that by sharing these stories with a broader audience, justice will come for some of these victims. See pages six and seven.

The 52-week series will include:

• a close look at what a “cold case” is and how each is investigated.

• weekly unsolved homicide profiles.

• an interactive online map.
