Two years after Indiana put more than 100 unsolved murders on playing cards, none of those cases has been solved, but officials say the program is still a success because they have generated thousands of new leads that has enabled investigators to rekindle dormant investigations.
Indiana is one of several states to issue decks of cards patterned after the deck the Army used in 2003 in the hunt for officials of Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq.
Indiana published two decks in 2010, covering 97 "cold case" killings and seven missing-persons cases.
The cards' circulation is limited to law enforcement and prisons, where they're the only cards available in the commissary.
More than half the victims in the two decks are from Marion County, but the cards include cases from 28 other Indiana counties as well.
