CORRECTION: The Magnet fishing group will be meeting at 10:00 am. An earlier version of this story said 10:30 am.
Our friends at Utah Cold Case Coalition have been doing a lot of incredible work to bring peace and closure to grieving Utah Families. And now they’re asking you to get involved.
On Saturday, August 31st, they are hosting a magnet fishing event in the Ogden and Weber Rivers. We will be throwing super strong magnets attached to ropes into the river, attempting to pull out guns and knives that may have been used in a crime.
We will be meeting in the south parking lot of the Newgate mall (where Sears used to be) at 10:00 am. You are encouraged to bring water, snacks, comfortable clothes and shoes, and sunscreen.
You can get your magnet fishing kit here.
Make sure to follow Utah Cold Case Coalition on Facebook for more upcoming events and cold case updates.
You can also support by purchasing a deck of Cold Case playing cards. Each of the 54 cards had the photos and details of a Utah cold case. Funds help support the many works of Utah Cold Case Coalition including the operation of their non-profit DNA testing lab.
