Oakland To Seek Cold Case Help With Posters, Billboards

OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — The Oakland Police department says it will put up billboards and posters with the faces of homicide victims across the city as part of an initiative to solve cold cases.

Oakland police on Monday announced they've launched an initiative to help reduce the number of open homicide cases.

The Oakland Tribune reports that starting next week, the department will put up billboards and posters across the city with the faces of cold case victims.

Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson says the posters will carry the headline "Do you know who killed me?"

The posters will also be viewable on a cold case website.
