It's the most tragic cold case I heard of

I accept this debate. BOP is on my opponent because he is suggesting we take a certain course of action that deviates from the status quo (i.e. we should start investigating a crime from not investigating a crime). So for the most part I'll wait to hear his case for why it should be re-opened, but I'll make a few brief points until then.

1. There's no point. If we had some kind of lead or something to go off of there would be a point to re-opening the investigation. But it's a cold case for a reason: there's no evidence to go off of, there's no leads to pursue at the moment. Everyone that they've interviewed has been cleared of the crime and there's no one else on their suspicion list. Re-opening it would just be a waste of funding.

2. The people investigating the murder were so godawful at it that there's no reason to let them back at it for a second time. "It was while the police were waiting for the call that they made several critical mistakes. They did not conduct a proper search of the house, the area was not sealed off and friends were allowed to walk in and out at their leisure. No moves were made to protect any forensic evidence." (1)

I now await my opponent's case for the debate to begin in earnest.
