This is a criminal matter not civil, so you should not waste your money hiring a lawyer. Are any of the addresses in different states (ie identity theft in more than one state)? If so, I'd give your nearest FBI office a call (the # is in the phone book of your nearest biggest city, or online I bet). A call to ICE also may be in order (your SS# would be a lot harder to use from another country).
Thank you for starting this thread, shnapple; it's brought up a lot of good points for all of us to watch. GL!
eta: If "no" to the 'more than one state' question: I'd give the office of your state attorney general a call and ask them for advice (and mention that local law enforcement does not appear to be doing a competent job on this). Many, many state attorneys general/employees do outstanding work on behalf of us "folks".
eta #2: if you did want to contact your local FBI office, you can go to fbi.gov and at the top-left you click "contact local office" and click on the map for your local area
