After 22 years without a viable suspect, has the Richard Aderson case gone cold? Unfortunately, it’s one of a growing number to have met with such a hopeless conclusion. Despite the advances in technology, such as omnipresent surveillance and DNA research, homicide clearance rates have steadily declined in the U.S. over the last half-century. In this first of a two-part series, we’ll examine the factors that have contributed to the increasing numbers of unsolved cases across the country.


And in the conclusion of our examination of cold cases, we’ll discuss how homicide investigators have begun to effectively employ TIME to their advantage in resolving cases that were long considered unsolvable.
