About Solve Crimes

Solve Crimes was created by long-time friends and business partners Rick Tracewell and Gavin Fish. The concept was to not just present compelling true crimes on YouTube, the web, and a podcast, but to encourage the viewers to help actually solve the crimes!

They never could have imagined just how well this concept would work. Through leads cultivated from audience members and their own investigating, Solve Crimes has presented new suspects to law enforcement, brought unsolved cold cases back into the spotlight or presented unsolved cold cases to the public for the very first time, and made partnerships with law enforcement and victim's family members to solve their cases once and for all.

We appreciate you being here! Please take a look around the web site and be sure to check out the Solve Crimes podcast and YouTube Channel, and be sure to subscribe to get notified of case updates and new episodes.

The Solve Crimes Team

Solve Crimes is absolutely a team effort. Besides Rick & Gavin, the people and businesses below have provided the tools needed to investigate the cases featured on this Web Site, on the Podcast, and the YouTube Channel.
