Families wanting answers on cold cases take their plea to the Legislature

A new bill being hammered out by Minnesota legislators hopes to breathe new life into reinvestigating cold case murders on a consistent basis. The bill seeks to empower families of victims and to survivors by forcing law enforcement agencies to reopen cases upon request.

The bill, if passed, would benefit the more than 2,081 Minnesota families who have lost loved ones to violence and don’t know who the killer is. Zero Abuse Project’s Director of Jacob Wetterling Resource Center, Alison Feigh, speaks to the bill and its potential impact.
