Abstract

Homicide investigations attract the highest levels of expectation as investigative failure has a significant and lasting impact upon victim families, investigators and wider society. By focusing upon ‘current’ homicides, present UK investigative and
forensic resourcing and methodology is arguably in danger of failing to recognize both the risks and potential presented by unresolved (cold case) ‘historic’ homicides. This paper argues that significant differences exist between these two types of homicide investigation, and that the embracing of these differences, promises much to the improvement for both types of homicide investigation.
