Embry-Riddle Wants to Help Solve Cold Cases


Starting this Fall, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will offer a capstone course on solving cold cases. It will be taught by former Yavapai County crime scene investigator Kelly Crockett, who sold the school on the program with her work in solving the half-century old cold case of “Little Miss Nobody,” the four-year-old New Mexico girl whose body was discovered in Congress.

Dr. Diana Orem, the Chair of the Forensic Psychology program, says a sense of fulfillment comes with solving any crime, but more so with cold cases.

The course will be available only to senior capstone students as a final project for their undergraduate degree. University official do plan to develop a complimentary course open to all students.
