3-15-18 homicide suspveh 1 3-15-18 homicide suspveh 2The Scottsdale Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a vehicle and subjects involved in a Scottsdale Homicide that occurred on February 22, 2018. 


On February 22, 2018 at approximately 6:15pm 58-year-old Bryan Blair was riding a bike north at about the 1200 block of North Scottsdale Road. As he rode north, a male subject was observed entering the roadway with a long metal object in his hand. The unidentified male subject then deliberately stuck the metal object into the front spokes of Blair’s bike as he traveled past.  This caused his bike to instantly stop, throwing Blair over the bike and onto the street. The unidentified male subject then got into the driver’s seat of a vehicle that was occupied by a second subject and quickly fled the scene. Mr. Blair was transported to an area hospital with life threatening injuries where he has remained for the past several weeks. Tragically, on March 14, 2018 he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased.


The vehicle is described as a 95-96 black Nissan 200SX. The suspect (driver) is described as a white male, 30 to 45 years old, shaved head wearing a black shirt and brown boots.  There is no description available for the passenger.

Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call the Scottsdale Police Department at 480-312-5000. For anonymous tips, please call Silent Witness at 480-948-6377(W-I-T-N-E-S-S) or visit the Silent Witness website at www.silentwitness.orglinks to external site.
