Public website has searchable data on cold cases




Open-source website Murder Accountability Project gives the public free access to data about homicide cases from federal, state and local governments, and the FBI.


The Murder Accountability Project “is the most complete data on U.S. homicides available anywhere,” the website said.
The database includes two major FBI datasets: The Uniform Crime Report from 1965 to the present and the Supplementary Homicide Report from 1976 to the present.

Anyone can use the site to search for cases based on location, weapon, time frame, and the victim’s sex, age and race, and look for connections or patterns.
“This site is especially useful in cases in which an offender is suspected of killing more than one victim,” the website said. “Possible additional victims may be identified by checking all available reports.”

Authors of the website use the 1996 killing of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey as an example.
