Marion County inmates receive game cards to help solve cold cases


Crime Stoppers of Marion County hopes a game of cards can help them solve some cold cases. The organization has recently started giving inmates at the Marion County Jail decks of playing cards that feature cold cases dating back to the 1960s. The group hopes the information on the cards will help jog inmates memories on the crimes. A similar program was launched statewide in 2007 but this is the first time it has been done exclusively in Marion County. Executive director of Crime Stoppers in Marion County, Robert Hauck, says the program already has postive feedback.
