Networks Advance Child Trafficking Investigation
Melinda Kidder of Columbia Investigations. Kidder, a PI, and Siedow each began making phone calls and posting Facebook and IM messages at a fast and furious clip.
Investigators with Integrity
Our team of detectives and support staff are committed to providing the highest quality investigative services.
I would like to offer my recommendation for Melinda and Columbia Investigations. Melinda’s assistance with my difficult and protracted situation was undertaken with the utmost professionalism and consideration. In one instance Melinda’s dogged persistence resulted in her serving a subpoena to an individual who was resolute in his efforts to not be located. Without any reservations I highly recommend Melinda and Columbia Investigations.
When I became a target of workplace violence, stalking, theft, and identity theft, it was Columbia Investigations (CI) that came to the rescue and helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. Melinda has the integrity, toughness, and honesty needed in investigators today. She is freakin’ awesome and I wouldn’t recommend anyone else for your investigative needs or even to establish a baseline as support for trial.
Melinda is smart, tough yet compassionate, frank, ethical, loyal and competent. Her clients can trust her to do a great job, with only their best interests at heart. She is more than fair, and a very hard worker.
Our law firm has retained the services of Columbia Investigations many times over the past year. Our firm is extremely pleased with the expeditious manner within which results are achieved. Columbia Investigations owner, Melinda Kidder, is very professional and courteous. We highly recommend Columbia Investigations, LLC and the services they offer!

Pretty Little Lies
It’s been brought to my attention that one of our competitors has been blogging negative information about our firm and me specifically as the owner, Melinda Kidder. Personally, I prefer not to talk down about other people. The falsehoods in these blogs of which I’ve spoken are broad and varied and a lawsuit is pending. In the meantime should you have any questions for me or require proof of competency and health please do not hesitate to approach. I will be more than happy to provide. Take care, Melinda
