Cold Case Homicide Unit


Call 911 if this is an emergency or a crime in progress.


The Cold Case Homicide Unit was formed by State Attorney Amira Fox when she took office as the State Attorney of the 20th Judicial Circuit in January 2019.

The Cold Case Homicide Unit reviews cold cases and works to develop new leads to help bring resolution for those impacted by these crimes. This unit is comprised of experienced homicide prosecutors and investigators with decades of experience in law enforcement and prosecution. This unique team was specifically chosen by State Attorney Fox to help solve cold cases throughout Southwest Florida.

The Cold Case Homicide Unit was made possible by our local legislative delegation and our Governor Ron DeSantis, who provided the funding for the specialized division.
