The El Dorado County District Attorney's Office and the El Dorado County Cold Case Task Force are partnering with Foothill 7 and the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and will be releasing information on a number of cold cases during the airing of “Sheriffs of El Dorado County” in hopes of receiving new tips and information about these cases to assist in the continuing investigations.

The "Sheriffs of El Dorado County" airs locally on Foothill 7 TV, as well as Sacramento’s FOX 40 on Saturday’s and Sunday’s.

In addition to this partnership, the District Attorney’s Office has implemented a new website dedicated to the unsolved homicides in the county dating back to the 1960's. The site will offer new press releases, links to other District Attorney’s Office websites, as well as information about unsolved homicides including informational videos. The new website,www.eldoradocoldcase.com, includes a tip line and email address for the public to call in any information they may have regarding any of these cases. All information can be confidential.

The District Attorney’s Office has partnered with the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, South Lake Tahoe Police Department and the California Department of Justice to form the El Dorado County Cold Case Task Force. Each agency has dedicated full time and part time investigators and a criminalist to work on these cases to bring justice to the suspects and closure to the victim’s families.
