Ohio's attorney general says the state's cold case homicide database now has more than 1,800 cases, more than 10 times the number it had before law enforcement agencies were asked to submit cases to the centralized site.
DeWine says his office has received dozens of tips regarding several of the cases since the database was expanded. DeWine's office tries to draw attention to some cases by routinely featuring them on the homepage of the attorney general's website.
Cincinnati's police department has submitted more than 400 cases, while Dayton police has registered more than 350 cases.
