Playing cards featuring some of Missouri's cold cases and high profile suspects are scheduled to be distributed to inmates beginning February 1, 2009.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jason Clark says that the patrol asked prosecutors and law enforcement agencies from around the state to submit, "high profile cases and crimes that they believe inmates can assist them in solving."

The patrol has partnered with the Taney County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, (who submitted the Rebecca Sutton case,) One Missing Link Inc., (one of the three missing women, Stacy McCall's, parents organization,) and Bass Pro Shops to provide the cards to inmates who may have crucial information that could assist law enforcement with many cold cases throughout the state.

The cost of the playing cards is $1.37 a deck.....money well spent in Clark's book, "any case is solvable with the right tip," he says.

Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott says that two other missing persons cases from Greene County in addition to Stacy McCall, Sherill Levitt, and Suzanne Streeter will be featured in the deck of cards. They are: John David Smith and Maureen Webb.

Sheriff Arnott says he will make the playing cards available in the commissary, "you know they will play with them and talk about them and call in tips," adding, "you never know what we'll be able to clear up."
