AUGUSTA – A bill aimed at creating funding for a cold case unit will have a public hearing this week.
The unit would consist of an attorney, two detectives and a crime lab worker. The hope is to bring closure to those affected by Maine’s 120 unsolved murder cases.
It’s anticipated that the unit would need around a half-million dollars to get off the ground.
A public hearing on the measure will be held this Thursday at 1 p-m in Augusta.
