Utah Detective Honored for Solving Cold Cases
July 19, 2012
The first case dropped on Unified Police Det. Todd Park’s desk when he joined the homicide unit in 1998 was a cold case. He spent the next 14 years delving into some of Utah’s most infamous unsolved crimes.
Park began working on cold cases full-time in 2005 and estimates he has solved around a dozen crimes — some of them many decades old — bringing closure to family members of victims who have sought answers for years.
The detective was honored Wednesday with the Vidocq Society medal of honor for his success as a cold case investigator. The Vidocq Society is a non-profit organization comprised of forensic professionals and private citizens who meet to discuss and investigate unsolved homicides.
The Unified Police Department is under command of the Salt Lake County sheriff and responsible for law enforcement in county areas that do not have their own police departments.
