50 Cases Leading Up To 50th Anniversary

Silent Observer will be holding its 50th Anniversary Celebration on May 25, 2022.  So, for the next 50 business days leading up to the event, Silent Observer will highlight 50 crimes police need the community’s help in solving and also some crimes Silent Observer tipsters aided police in solving.  

Silent Observer will post one per day on Silent Observer’s Facebook page (silentobserverkentcounty), Twitter (@kentsotips) and on our website, silentobserver.org  This initiative begins March 15. 

The goal of this initiative to allow the community to assist police safely and anonymously in solving these crimes by using Silent Observer.  A solved crime also brings victims a sense of closure and justice which is also a goal of this project.  Some of the cases are older in nature and we hope to communicate to those who might hold back in giving their crime-solving information to look at their relationship with that suspect now and ask themselves if they still have the same fear or the same allegiance to the perpetrator and if not, to use their voice now to do what’s right and share their information with Silent Observer. Certainly, a suspect is not presumed guilty until he is convicted by a court of law.  But this will give the suspect the opportunity to answer to his/her charges. As with all tips that lead to the arrest of someone involved in a crime, rewards are offered in all cases highlighted.
