The unsolved murder is never closed. It's assigned the title 'cold case' and periodically re-investigated. The murders referred to within this body of work are all associated with the Cheshire area. The photographs are taken within the vicinity of where the crime took place. This might be the land or property where the murder was committed, where the body was discovered, or may depict the places searched by the police for the murder weapon and incriminating evidence. The nature of these photographs coupled with the knowledge of these crimes, asks us to contemplate the idea that there are people out there with the guilt or the burden of knowing.
