Because of their collaboration, decks of playing cards featuring unsolved homicide cases will be distributed across county jails and correctional facilities in Florida. Each card features a photo of the victim and details of their unsolved case.

The effort aims to use the power of community engagement and law enforcement to help bring closure to the families of cold case victims.

“We are immensely honored to partner with Crime Stoppers on this initiative,” Sheriff Bill Leeper said in a news release. “Together, we are turning playing cards into catalysts for justice. Each card represents a life lost, a family in mourning, and a community seeking answers. By placing these cards in correctional facilities, we’re not just distributing games; we’re distributing hope.”

The creation of the cards was funded by grants from the Crime Stoppers Trust Fund and the FSA’s Criminal Apprehension Assistance Program.
