"To date, we have received very little information from the public in relation to this investigation," said Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta. "Sometimes people might not realize how valuable the information they have is to our investigators, but even the smallest piece of information can be a break in the case for us. Even if you have dash cam video from the area and think there is nothing relevant on it, we are asking you to contact our investigators so they can have a look."
Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
