Kentucky State Police (KSP) is renewing their effort to solve unsolved cases by asking the public for assistance with leads.  In 2010, KSP distributed over 8,000 decks of playing cards to prisons across Kentucky depicting unsolved case information. 
 
The deck of cards highlighted 52 unsolved Kentucky homicide or missing person cases.  Since that time, three of those cases have been solved.
 
KSP hopes that sharing information with the public again will provide fresh leads that can help solve these cases and bring some closure to families.
 
Tpr. Michael Webb reviews the leads as they come in and disseminates the information to local posts.
 
“We have received hundreds of tips in the past two years that we hope will lead to more cases being solved,” says Webb.  “Not only do these tips assist with solving cases, they sometimes provide additional information about other criminal activity taking place.”
 
KSP has placed copies of the complete deck of cards on its website at http://www.kentuckystatepolice.org/unsolved_cases.htm.
They have also established a toll free tip line where tips can remain anonymous at 1-877-735-2648.  The public can also submit tips via email at kyunsolved@ky.gov
