Utah homicide detectives hold summit on cold cases

SOUTH SALT LAKE -- Homicide detectives from across the state are meeting to share notes on more than 70 unresolved murder cases in Utah -- some dating back to the 1960s.

The Deseret News reports this week's cold case summit is the second organized by the Unified Police Department and Lt. Todd Park.

Park is considered one of the top cold case detectives in the state. His unit has solved cases that include the stabbing death of 14-year-old Chris Mosier in 1993, the 1974 murder of Brigham Young University student Barbara Jean Rocky, and the 1991 killing of Kennecott Utah Copper security guard Bryan Patrick Ruff.

Park says the meetings send a clear message that the victims haven't been forgotten. He would not reveal which cases are being examined by the detectives.
