The Fremont Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons Unit has invested its resources into investigating and solving cold case homicides and missing persons. The Cold Case Division focuses on those cases with the highest probability of being solved with fresh leads and new forensic technology.

Our mission is to give a voice to those who can no longer speak for themselves and our our ultimate goal is to give answers and a sense of closure to the loved ones of every murder victim and missing person.

While each case is unique, most of these homicide cases have gone unsolved for years and there are no active leads for investigators to pursue. Our hope is to bring awareness by re-publicizing cold cases from time to time with the hope that someone with information will come forward. Anyone with information is asked to contact Cold Case Detective Jacob Blass at 510-790-6963 or via email.
