There have been 17 murders in Durham so far this year, a number that is pretty average for the past five years or so in the city. But the Durham Police Department isn't just focusing on investigations that are current, they are also making an effort to investigate more than 150 murders that are still unsolved.
Sergeant David Piatt, with the Homicide Investigation Unit is keenly aware that the families of those victims are still waiting for answers,.
"I don't think you can say one person is more important than the other. They all deserve closure," he says.
