The Ohio Valley Cold Case Task Force is in full swing, and could be close to cracking several cases very soon.

Coordinator Fred Connors said they are working on over 50 unsolved cases that have happened within a 25 mile radius between Bridgeport and Wheeling, ranging from homicides to questionable deaths and missing person cases.

Connors said he as well as the nine members of the task force, who are retired law enforcement from various counties in the Ohio Valley, are very excited about coming close to solving old cases.

Right now, they can't say which ones could be cracked.

Connors says they are meeting once a month at Wheeling Jesuit University.

Nine students from the college have also been assigned to the task force to work with different investigators.
