Homicides and Cold Cases

A homicide cold case is one in which the case is on hold, primarily due to a lack of witnesses or other promising evidence. There is no statute of limitations when it comes to homicide cases and SFPD is always ready to reopen cold cases if new information becomes available.

The San Francisco Mayor’s Office has offered rewards for helpful tips in many cold homicide cases. The rewards range from $50,000 to $250,000 if the information leads to an arrest and prosecution.

If you have information about these or other homicide cold cases, please contact the San Francisco Police Department’s Homicide Detail at 1-415-553-1145.  You can also submit information anonymously by calling our tip line at 1-415-553-1166.
