DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO HELP SOLVE A REAL COLD CASE?
The question is simple enough: can hundreds of attendees with varied experiences and backgrounds work alongside our world-class experts in profiling, criminology, law enforcement, forensics, and crime scene reconstruction to help develop new ideas and leads in a case where a Hail Mary pass is all that’s left?
WITH YOUR HELP WE’RE GOING TO FIND OUT.
CrowdSolve is an entirely new kind of true crime experience: a weekend of an immersive education and intensely-focused action. All attendees will deep-dive together into two real-life cold cases that have been specifically chosen for this event. Guided by experts, and surrounded by key players in the case, including the police and families, we’ll work through the facts, the case file, and the key questions that have persisted.
This isn’t a made-for-TV drama that will wrap-up neatly in 60 minutes–this is real life, complete with all of the complexities, false-starts, and frustrating roadblocks that law enforcement deals with every day in their investigations. But, by the end of the weekend, we hope that we’ll be able to offer new insights, new ways of looking at old evidence, or new leads to those who refuse to let these cases be forgotten.
