Deck of cards to help solve cold cases


WAUSAU (WAOW) -- State investigators said they're trying a new approach to crack unsolved cases in our area, by using a deck of cards. They said the two decks of cards include the pictures and stories of people who have disappeared across the state. Three of those victims are from the Wausau-Area. Investigators tell us the cards will be passed out to places like prisons to get people talking about the 104 cases statewide

"So we're just hoping that maybe this sparks something and we can get more closures," said Marathon County Sheriff's Department Special Investigator Charley Jones.

Officials said those cards should be finished sometime this month.
