The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is launching a podcast Monday in what it describes as an attempt to revive cold cases by sparking conversation and new tips.

The podcast, called “Unfinished Business” will focus on missing persons cases and unsolved homicides, some tracing back decades, according to the office. Episodes will feature lead detectives from the cases and friends and family of the victim.

In a statement, Sheriff Chad Chronister said the podcast was about getting justice for the families. He said he hopes it could bring in new leads or get people talking about the old cases.

“They deserve answers, and we won’t stop until we are able to give them that,” Chronister said.

Monday’s episode will be found on a variety of platforms including Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Podcast, Stitcher, iHeartRadio and the Hillsborough County sheriff’s website. Episodes will air weekly.

The first episode will focus on Cieha Taylor, a 28-year-old woman who has been missing since early February of this year.
