The NYPD solves thousands of cases each year — but a handful of others prove difficult to crack, even with hours of investigative work and the help of media attention.

This past year was no exception.

Here’s a look back at some of the notable criminal cases of 2021 that remain unsolved:

Julissia Batties

Seven-year-old Julissia Battles was found with trauma to her head and body on Aug. 10 inside a Bronx apartment. She was rushed to Lincoln Hospital but died, police at the time said.

Initially, the girl’s mother had told investigators that Julissia had fallen around 5 a.m. and hit her head on a desk, cops said. Around 8 a.m., the girl started vomiting and passed out.

An autopsy revealed the tragic girl — the subject of a heated custody battle between her mother and paternal grandmother since birth — died from “blunt force abdominal trauma,” according to officials.

Julissia’s 17-year-old half-brother later allegedly admitted to assaulting the girl before she was found dead, but neither he — nor anyone else — was ever charged.

Rush-hour murder

A man was fatally shot outside a bustling Brooklyn subway station in Williamsburg earlier this month, police said.

Cops said at the time they believed the Dec. 10 act of gun violence, which occurred at the bottom of the steps of the Marcy Avenue station, was “drug-related.”

“I’m just glad that I’m still alive,” she later told The Post.

Cops have yet to catch up to her attacker.
