Unsolved Homicide Investigations

In pursuit of truth.

Get fresh eyes on your case.

Lauth Investigations International is dedicated to providing families with answers in the unsolved homicide or death of their missing loved one. An unsolved murder is not just the absence of justice for the victim but also the absence of closure for the family of the victim. Such a violent incident leaves families reeling and desperate for answers from police. Even the most competent police departments hit a wall in unsolved homicide case. Witnesses disappear, evidence is mishandled, or the trail just goes cold, and the victim is forgotten. The case sits on a shelf, collecting dust in the police’s cold case unit.

When police hit a wall in a death investigation or unsolved homicide, a new perspective is necessary. Getting an independent set of eyes on your unsolved homicide case can mean generation of new leads in unsolved homicide investigations—just like the objective eye of a private investigator. We work closely with the family of the victim, providing regular updates and insight into their case.

Statistic: According to the FBI, only 45% of violent
crimes lead to arrest and prosecution.
