The Retired Investigators Guild (the RIG) and Midnight Platoon Collaborate to Release a New Shirt Supporting Cold Case Homicide Investigations

A portion of all proceeds from the sale of The RIG T-Shirt will help to support the RIG’s mission of providing answers to victim’s families and solving cold case homicides.

Reno, Nev. (June 2024) The Retired Investigators Guild (the RIG) and Midnight Platoon are excited to announce the release of a new shirt designed to highlight the incredible nonprofit work of the RIG, which provides answers to victim’s families and solves cold case homicides. This collaboration symbolizes both organizations shared commitment to bringing justice to victims and their families while giving back to the community. A portion of the proceeds from each shirt sale will go directly to supporting the RIG’s investigative work. Pre-orders are now available for purchase.

Mike Marty from the RIG said, “This partnership with Midnight Platoon allows us to continue our mission of bringing justice to the families affected by cold case homicides. We are thankful for their support and love the design they created for this special shirt. We think our supporters will love it too.”

“We love the mission of the RIG and are glad to help out. We try to balance business with philanthropy, and this collaboration is a perfect example. We’re excited to extend our support to the RIG,” commented Andrew Liakos, Founder of Midnight Platoon.

The RIG T-Shirt is crafted from 100 percent combed ring-spun cotton with a tagless, itch-free design. It sports a ribbed collar and double-needle stitching for durability. The graphic on the shirt features a solemn and powerful image of a retired investigator skeleton, depicted in a classic trench coat and fedora, holding a file folder labeled “HOMICIDE.” The investigator stands against a backdrop of the American flag, symbolizing patriotism and dedication to justice. The design is both striking and respectful, honoring the commitment of the RIG which continues to serve its communities by solving cold-case homicides. This ultra-comfortable and soft-for-all-day comfort t-shirt is available in sizes XS up to 4XL with an MSRP of $27.99.

Midnight Platoon is a preferred partner of the RIG for clothing and law enforcement support apparel. Midnight Platoon’s story began after a line of duty (LOD) shooting. While awaiting the DA’s justification, Liakos began to crank out some killer designs. The Midnight Platoon brand was well represented by all of NYPD’s (now disbanded) OCCB units who handled heavy enforcement, consisting of 85 percent of the city’s annual arrests. Launched in 2012, Midnight Platoon welcomes all LEOs, Military, and civilian patriots to wear and support the brand. It is committed to crafting unique high-quality clothing with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.

The RIG is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Reno that has national reach. Donations for the RIG’s work can be made by visiting the Retired Investigators Guild – Pledge page. Donations help fund the RIG’s programs. The organization is currently working hard to create strategic partnerships, staff key positions, build infrastructure, and get off the ground. Donations will go directly to funding this endeavor.
