If you want to look further into the number of murders in Pennsylvania by year, you can go to the webpages of several local, state, or federal law enforcement agencies, which frequently share comprehensive crime reports with additional details about the sorts of offenses perpetrated within that area over specific periods of time. Furthermore, you can visit the websites of Pennsylvania’s multiple law enforcement agencies as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which both puts together and releases an annual Uniform Crime Report that includes specific information and statistics about various types of crimes and their crime rates for every state in the United States, as well as many counties and cities within each state.
Another awesome resource at the public’s disposal is Project: Cold Case, who partnered with the Murder Accountability Project to compile a comprehensive list of the statistics of every unsolved murder in every state that was committed between 1980 and 2019. According to this chart, there were approximately 36,094 homicides in Pennsylvania during that 40-year period. On closer inspection, approximately 27,685 of these murders have been solved over the same period, leaving law enforcement agencies with roughly 8,409 unsolved murders in Pennsylvania today, according to the latest website update.
In addition to Project: Cold Case’s website with unsolved homicide statistics, the site also houses a database of nearly 25,000 unsolved murder cases from across the United States. Several additional investigative and law enforcement agencies across Pennsylvania provide their own unsolved case lists. One example of a murder in northern Pennsylvania which remains unsolved that you may be able to find within these lists/databases is the 1997 murder of Clara Roberta Kenvin, in addition to the 1981 disappearance of Lonene Rogers. Other cases that are most often included are the many unsolved central Pennsylvania murders, which include the 1987 murder of Paul Michael “Mickey” Buck, the 2002 hit-and-run murder of Shawn Fosnaught and Scott Baur, the 1993 murder of Stephanie Coyle, and the 1993 double murder of Lynne Marie Stansfield and Dale Gene Wolf. In addition to those, another category which may be included in law enforcement websites as well as within Project: Cold Case’s database are the unsolved murders in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, as well as unsolved murders in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, including the 2019 murder of Tyrone Shaw and the 1979 murder of Susan Reinert.
