Cold Cases

A cold case is a case in which all available investigative leads have been exhausted, but remains open pending the possible discovery of new evidence.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office recognizes the importance of solving homicide cold cases and bringing those accountable to justice, giving families long sought closure. In many cases, there may be someone in the public who has information that could help solve the case. A witness may have had information at the time the crime occurred, but was afraid to come forward, or received information later and not known who to contact.

If you have any information, regardless of how much time has passed, please call the Homicide Unit and provide that information.

You can reach the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit at (910) 321-6592.

You might also call Fayetteville Crime Stoppers at (910) 487-TIPS (8477). There is a reward for up to $1,000.00 on information that leads to an arrest.

Thank you for helping us to bring justice to victims and their families.
