Cold Case Investigations

Post Date:11/05/2019 1:00 PM

The Santa Clara Police Department's Investigations Division is committed to investigating all crimes, including Cold Cases.

A Cold Case is a crime, accident or missing person case that has gone unsolved. While each case is unique, most of these cases have gone unsolved for years and there are no active leads for investigators to pursue. If, however, new information emerges the case will be thoroughly re-examined with fresh leads and new forensic technology. With regular visibility, a suspect may also confess to the crime. A Cold Case remains open until it is solved.

The Santa Clara Police Department hopes that re-publicizing Cold Cases for John Bailon, Keith Baker, Christopher DePasquale, Mathew Flores and Neil Henry gives a voice to those who can no longer speak for themselves, with an ultimate goal of giving answers and a sense of closure to their loved ones. Additional information about each case is available online.

Anyone with information about a Cold Case is asked to contact the Santa Clara Police Department at Or, stay anonymous and submit your crime tips using the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers mobile app P3TIPS, online at or by calling (408) 947-STOP. If your tip leads to an arrest, you are eligible for a CASH reward. 

The information you provide could be the missing link that solves the case.
