On March 15th, 2018 the department issued a press release asking for help from the public regarding this case.  Over the next few months, our investigators received anonymous tips that identified Hinton as the possible suspect.

Detectives used surveillance videos, witness testimony and technical evidence to place Hinton at the scene of the murder.

We would like to thank the Public, Silent Witness and our Media partners for their assistance in helping us to bring this investigation to a successful conclusion.
