Two retired detectives back to crack old Camden murders

Two celebrated retired detectives are returning to work to try to crack some of Camden’s most vexing murder cases.

Marty Devlin and Joe Forte have joined the Camden County Police Department as consultants focusing solely on unsolved homicides.

Both men are retired Camden County Prosecutor’s Office investigators who have cracked some high-profile murders.

The Courier-Post reports the two are working with active officers and looking at unsolved cases from 2010 to 2013.

Camden is one of the nation’s most violent cities, but it has not had cold-case units for long in the past. The last one was shut down after police layoffs in 2011.
