Did the crime occur at the police station? Those are two odd pictures for this story.

Hopefully the police are withholding information from the public regarding a suspect(s) in this case, When taking into consideration that the murder occurred in a residential area, and one block from a busy four way intersection so early in the evening, where people are walking their pets, it would be really scary to think that violent crimes are committed and our neighborhood is in danger of becoming another statistic of having an unsolved murder. I have not seen this story re-run in the press or with the news stations so it is rather concerning that this unsolved murder is on the back burner.
