Cold Cases

Cold Case Files

The Sumter County Sheriff's Office remains committed to the families of homicide victims in bringing those responsible for these acts to justice. It is based on that commitment that this Cold Case page is presented to you as we ask for your assistance. Frequently cases are solved due to a citizen coming forward and providing that vital piece of evidence which had been previously unknown to authorities. No matter how small or insignificant you feel your information might seem, please provide it to the Cold Case Unit.

All information provided to the Unit is assessed as a part of the bigger picture or entire puzzle. Many times there is only one missing piece needed to bring a case to justice. Your assistance could make the difference in bringing justice and closure to a victim and their family.
