Wisconsin investigators are trying a new approach to generate leads in unsolved homicides and missing persons cases throughout the state.
The Wisconsin Association of Homicide Investigators, along with other groups, created a deck of playing cards to be distributed to inmates in county jails and prisons.
Each of the 52 cards features a description and photo of a missing person or unsolved homicide case.
Brown County received about 15 decks last month.
“They’re out and being used daily, sot he inmates are seeing these cards and hopefully can jog some memories and get some information,” Lieutenant Phil Steffen at the Brown County Jail said.
On Action 2 News at Six, we talk to a detective with the Green Bay Police Department who says the cards could help him solve an 11-year-old missing persons case.
