Submitting Information or Tips

The primary purpose of posting case profiles to this page is to generate tips from the public about active cases that may help law enforcement give closure to victim’s families. Leveraging the power of web and social media, the public is encouraged to share case profiles through digital means.

BIA takes its responsibilities of protecting the identity of victim’s next of kin and family very seriously. While agents are working hundreds of cases, only those that next of kin and families have authorized are published here. Additionally, these cases are active investigations. While the Victim Services Program provides available case information to the next of kin/ family, the MMU cannot speak to the media or others about what is occurring within the investigation to preserve the confidentiality of the case.

If you have any information about these cases, or wish to make a referral, please contact us at any of the tip and information lines.
