The Indago team has worked tirelessly with dozens of law enforcement agencies around the world to identify violent crime suspects and victims, bringing justice to families.  Many of these cases were deemed "unsolvable" at one point by the media and the agencies themselves.  Perhaps that would have remained the case without the latest advancements in identity resolution.  Here are just a few of the stories where the Indago founders worked directly with law enforcement to bring justice for victims and their loved ones, demonstrating the tremendous power of this new technology.
