Formed in 2005, the Peninsula Cold Case Project (PCCP) is a collaboration between local, state and federal law enforcement partners, the Department of Justice, and the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office. The mission of the PCCP is to close unsolved homicides and this regional investigative effort has resulted in a number of homicide case closures including the 1998 abduction and homicide of 13-year-old Christina Williams. Recently PCCP members were honored by the California Peace Officers’ Association with the 2017 Outstanding Cold Case award for their work on the Christina Williams case which resulted in the filing of criminal charges against her killer.
