SUBJ FORENSIC EVIDENCE
(VILLAGE BUREAU)-- Following leads need to be examined:
1.) Police Report--none has been released.
2.) Murder Weapon--not indicated anywhere, nor caliber.
3.) Shell Casings-- again, no indication. However, any newsteams at the scene of the crime may well have taken photos and evidence of expended shell casings would be evident by markings in the immediate vicinity. No shell casings found or seen, then it was a revolver.
Victim appears to have been confronted by lone person or group. No indication if Assailant(s) on foot or in a vehicle that pulled up alongside Victim as he was walking down the street at 0420 on July 10.
Victim was on phone to, reported as Girlfriend (unidentified), when confrontation occurred. Assuming the bruises were incurred at the moment of confrontation, and by Assailant(s), then Victim must have broken free and ran. At this point, he was shot in the back, or as others report, back of head. Numbers range from one to two gunshots fired.
Police prowl car team heard gunshots responded, Victim still conscious but unable to give account of crime.
Again, no indication of shell casings, caliber, type of weapon.
A number of robberies have been reported in the vicinity lately. Police would have ample evidence to compare for similarities.
Victim, in role as Data Staffer, may or may not have considered himself a "tough guy", able to reject a robbery in progress, thus the scuffle. If he felt he was losing the fight, he broke and ran and that's when the fatal gunshots were fired. Best motive thus far, botched robbery; following the gunshots, the Assailant(s) panicked, left the scene without taking money and personal possessions from Victim: watch, cellphone, other valuables.
