Playing cards to help solve LA murders

Monday, April 19, 2010 - 2:38pm

Prisons across the state are handing out special decks of playing cards to inmates in hopes of solving some of Louisiana's cold murder cases.

On each of the 52 cards in the decks is a picture a murder victim, a time, date, location of the killing and the Crime Stoppers phone number.

If a prisoner knows anything about a homicide, Crime Stoppers says a tip can be made with complete anonymity and rewarded with cash.

10,000 of these decks have been distributed in Louisiana’s state prisons and another 10,000 will be made available to the general public.
