TPD seeks public's help on unsolved murders

Posted: Updated:

You could have the missing pieces of the puzzle that could help Toledo police solve several murders. Police say the smallest tip could help put someone behind bars and give families closure

Darnell Green and John Hill were hanging out at a house when someone shot and killed them both. The double homicide is Toledo's latest unsolved murder. A friend of the victims says she was horrified to hear about their deaths.  

"Two good people, would never harm nobody intentionally or none of that," says friend Tiera.

Last year around this time, Toledo had recorded 32 murders. So far this year, police have investigated 26. Eleven of them are unsolved.

In April, security camera's caught cab driver William Moore getting punched in the face. He died at the hospital a few days later. His attacker is still on the loose.
     
Detectives have yet to solve the deadly shooting of Rudy Staples, Jr. Someone shot and killed him on Potomac near Fernwood.

Andrew Anderson's case has gone cold too. He was shot and killed at Elm and Utica

Police found Shaun Flowers in the alley behind 1219 Woodstock with multiple gunshot wounds.
Still no arrest in his case.

Families and the community have been traumatized by the violence on the streets, gun violence thatalso cut short the life of Antonio Watson. He was found shot in a hallway at Westland Gardens.
    
Murder victim Kenneth Collins was found shot to death in his car on Reynolds near Dorr street.
         
Police found Zak Burton's decomposed body in a garage on Buckeye street earlier this summer.

Investigators say they need your help.

"If we can get that little piece of information, often times we can connect some dots, make a little step forward. That step forward can lead to two or threes steps forward, to interviews and hopefully closing the cases," says Toledo Police Sgt. Joe Heffernan.

Investigators are hoping tips can help them solve those cases along with the murder of Fredrick Watson. He was shot and killed in a car.

Officers are also looking for whoever shot and killed Christian Snow-Veley. Police found his body wrapped in a blanket in a vacant house.

Police say only solid leads can prevent these killers from getting away with murder. If you have any information about any of the cases, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
