FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (FOX 2) - Seven murders in Farmington Hills dating back to 1974 are unsolved.
The city's police department recently launched a website dedicated to solving these crimes.
"Our goal is to let the families know we will never forget their loved ones, and let the perpetrators know we are dedicated to ensuring justice," said Chief Jeff King. "I hope that putting this information out to the public will bring new information. The passing of time allows for decreased pressure for an otherwise reluctant witness to come forward. Please visit this webpage and help these families who have never gotten the justice or closure they deserve."
The city also hopes the site will help it solve its five open missing persons cases.
