Gruesome Quadruple Murder Case Going Nowhere Fast

Today marks a month since the gruesome discoveries of four bodies of young men living in an apartment complex at the corner of Dean and Plues Streets. Their throats had been slit and bodies stabbed as many as 22 times each. It was a horrific sight and the mere thought of possible retaliation led to a dramatic shutdown of the City. From the very vlcsnap-2013-02-08-19h52m16s1vlcsnap-2013-02-08-19h51m59s119beginning, residents and relatives of the murdered men – Albert Fuentes, Leonard “Ghost” Myers, Keino Quallo and Anthony Perez – believe the murders were orchestrated by Police and specifically the Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) – a charge officialdom has just as strenuously denied. Today, new OC of Eastern Division ACP Miguel Segura said that the team on the case, including head of Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) Supt. Alden Dawson, continue their investigation, specifically looking for key evidence such as DNA. They have also recruited a British expert to assist in the case but so far it has been tough going.

He nonetheless maintained that the Department intends to crack the case no matter what it takes. In the wake of the January 8 massacre, alleged leaders of the George Street gang, which has lost several top lieutenants recently including Shelton “Pinky” Tillett and Avondale Trumbach Fuller, asked to be taken out of the City. There is no indication that they have returned, but despite murders reaching double digits for a fifth straight month, the peace in the area has not been disturbed.
