PDF Boulder: PDF

by Silvia Pettem

I'm a longtime historical researcher, newspaper columnist, and author of more than a dozen books. After decades of work for individuals, businesses, and governments, my life took a new turn in 1996, when I stumbled upon the gravestone of a Jane Doe––a murder victim from 1954. A few years later, I applied my research skills to both old-fashioned detective work and the power of the internet by entering into a partnership with my local sheriff and with forensic experts of the Vidocq Society to successfully determine the young woman’s identity. I chronicled our work in "Someone’s Daughter: In Search of Justice for Jane Doe."
In 2008, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office gave me a Sheriff’s Commendation Award for doing the “lion’s share of the research” on the Jane Doe case. Two years later, the Vidocq Society presented me with its Medal of Honor.
While continuing to volunteer for the Sheriff’s Office, I'm now an associate member of the Vidocq Society, a volunteer in the Detectives Section of the Boulder Police Department, a NamUs Academy graduate, and a NamUs instructor in classes sponsored by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation–– working with colleagues all over the country. I wrote "Cold Case Research: Resources for Unidentified, Missing, and Cold Homicide Cases" in order to aid other investigators as they grapple with cold cases of their own.
