Old West crime meets New Age technology

Billy the Kid carved his name into history through his exploits during and after the Lincoln County War.  In a career filled with almost impossible escapes and daring acts in battle, the “Kid” nevertheless found himself on the losing side of the war and, in its aftermath, was branded the West’s most notorious and wanted desperado.

Reportedly killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett in 1881, rumors persisted that the Kid survived, and new evidence developed by Cold West Detective Agency may prove that the Kid lived well into the Atomic Age.

Cold West Detective Agency takes a different and unique approach to history. While historians like to ‘study’ it, Cold West detectives actually ‘investigate’ it as a cold case.  Working with law enforcement, Cold West detectives bring distinctive and rare expertise to the investigation of historical cold cases.

Blending old-west footwork with leading-edge investigation case management technologies from Texas-based Case Closed Software, Cold West detectives perform robust investigations at these century-old crime scenes.

Cold West picks up where history left off, and that can make some historians uncomfortable.  It’s been said that “dead men tell no tales”, but when Cold West’s group of hardened investigators combine their expertise and curiosity with Case Closed Software, these investigations come back alive, and history begins to speak its secrets.

Cold West uses the “posse method”, utilizing experts from any and every field required to move the case forward.  They work hand-in-hand with local Sheriffs, police, tech experts, federal agents, historians, and other experts, using cutting edge modern crime scene investigative methods (CSI) to develop never before seen and court-accepted evidence that changes history.

“Case Closed Software has been a game-changer for us”, said Steve Sederwall the co-founder of Cold West and former federal criminal investigator. “Our ability to blend all of our new investigation findings with all of those historical records helps us identify and develop new tips on our historical cases.”

Recently, Cold West – in the midst of investigating another famous old west crime – used Case Closed to develop previously unknown information that could completely change history’s view of the case.  That investigation continues today.

“I like to think about how Jesse James or Billy The Kid would react to seeing how the accepted narrative of their demise is being changed through the work of Cold West detectives using modern and leading-edge technology”, added Case Closed Software’s president Douglas Wood.

THE EXODUS ROAD TURNS TO CASE CLOSED SOFTWARE TO INVESTIGATE GLOBAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) OCTOBER 16, 2020

The Exodus Road, a global organization dedicated to fighting human trafficking, announced today that they have adopted the industry leading investigation case management system from Austin, TX based Case Closed Software.

The Exodus Road fights human trafficking by sending national and foreign operatives to suspected human trafficking locations to gather intelligence and evidence. To date, their organization has been directly involved in the rescue of nearly 1500 victims of human trafficking and the arrests of almost 600 criminals in six different countries. Using Case Closed Software, the company expects to improve these global operations and manage cases more effectively, ultimately resulting in the rescue of more and more victims.

The Exodus Road began through the work of co-founders Matt and Laura Parker who, in 2010, operated a children’s home in rural Northern Thailand. During that time, Matt and Laura were exposed to marginalized people groups – targets for human trafficking. Eventually, Matt began networking with news media and local police to learn about the problem at the ground level. After a period of research, he was deputized by police and started working personally to find those trapped in slavery. Today, they lead a team of 70 staff members, many of whom are national operatives who work closely with vetted police partners.

“With operatives and investigators around the world, we needed a truly powerful and multi-jurisdictional investigation management system,” said Ryan Hill, director of Global Operations at The Exodus Road. “We chose the Case Closed Software solution because of its impressive feature set, multi-language support, and ease of use for our field operatives. Case Closed Software will allow us to stay organized and share case files electronically with local law enforcement agencies around the world. We can even plan rescue operations directly within the system.”

Case Closed Software’s founder and CEO, Douglas Wood, commented “When we first met the folks at The Exodus Road, we were shocked to learn how widespread this criminal activity is. Human traffickers operate in a shadowy underworld that knows no borders and has no mercy for its victims. Case Closed Software is a perfect fit for anti-human trafficking investigations. Our software allows operatives to collect and share intelligence and evidence and helps track the people, locations and other entities involved in these horrendous crimes.”

The Case Closed Software investigation management platform deployed by The Exodus Road includes end-to-end case management with a configurable workflow, tips and leads management, evidence tracking, operations planning, multi-language support, and a host of other powerful features including entity deconfliction and visualization.
