Operation Found & Forgotten

BSO is asking the public for help identifying the people profiled on this page. In each case and for various reasons, the common methods of identification � fingerprints, dental records, witness accounts � have failed. So investigators have been unable to notify the victims' families of their deaths or find their killers. Please look at the photos, read the profiles and ask yourself if anything is familiar. Your tip might be the one to lend solace to a grieving family or put a killer in jail.

As you see each case's photo slideshow, you can click on photos to enlarge them. Please note that some of the content on this page is not appropriate for children.

You can report your tips to Crime Stoppers of Broward County anonymously at (954)493-TIPS, toll free at (866)493-TIPS or online at https://www.tipsubmit.com/WebTips.aspx?AgencyID=157.
