Ind. Gov't. - " 'Cold case' playing cards sent to prisons IDOC hopes cards lead to solved cases"

Fascinating story by Maureen Hayden of CNHI, today in the Kokomo Tribune. It begins:

Indiana state prison officials are using customized playing cards for a deadly serious purpose — to help unlock the mysteries of unsolved murders and persons gone missing.

On Tuesday, the Indiana Department of Correction released the third edition of the “Indiana Cold Case Homicides Playing Cards” – a deck of cards that profile 52 unsolved cases that have gone cold for lack of evidence or leads.

The “cold case” cards have a targeted audience. The 10,000 decks printed with each edition are only available for purchase by inmates in the state’s 25 prison facilities.
