OK (KSWO)- Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) and the Department of Corrections (DOC) have a new approach to searching for leads in cold cases.

Fifty-two selected cold case homicides, missing persons, and unidentified persons cases from across the state are now part of a deck of playing cards to be sold to prisoners at several DOC facilities.

Prisoners often possess information on crimes. OSBI is hopeful the cards will entice inmates to contact OSBI with information which may lead to a reward.

Money from the sale of the cards will go back into the program to purchase subsequent sets of playing card with cold cases from law enforcement agencies.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
