Brian Killacky is a consultant with the Amber Alert Technical Assistance Program. He is an expert in the field of investigating unresolved child homicides, long term missing and unidentified human remains. Previously, he was a detective with the Chicago Police Department (CPD) for 27 years specializing initially in the investigation of cases involving child sexual exploitation. Upon retirement, Brian worked for the Cook County States Attorney Office where he was an Investigator in the Cold Murder Unit and a supervisor in the Complex Homicide Unit. Brian was one of two presenters at the very first Dallas Crimes Against Children Conference. This speaker is sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Training Center (NCJTC).

Silvia Pettem is an author, writer, and historical researcher specializing in true crime as well as local history and genealogy. Pettem’s research-heavy process and style are also often utilized in the realm of cold cases. In her New York Times bestseller work, Someone’s Daughter: In Search of Justice for Jane Doe, Pettem investigates the murder of an unidentified woman found in Boulder Canyon in 1954. Published in 2009, the book is the culmination of over a decade of research into the identity of the woman and her likely killer. Further developments in the case after the book’s publication led to a successful identification of Jane Doe.
