Vt. looks at strengthening cold case probes

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Lawmakers are considering a proposal to add a cold case investigator to the Vermont State Police.

Rep. Patti Lewis, a Berlin Republican, got an interested reception from the House Government Operations Committee this past week when she brought her proposal to the panel.

Lewis says her research indicates there at least 57 unsolved homicides and 32 missing-persons cases pending in Vermont, the oldest dating from the 1970s.

She's calling for one new investigator devoted to the cases, but says some lawmakers have suggested she should ask for two, given the caseload.

Lewis says her motivation is to bring closure to the families involved.
