"I think it is important that as a witness, especially a witness that's courageous enough to come forward on a homicide investigation and help the homicide investigators and to help this city and this community put killers behind bars, I think that it's important that they should be comfortable to walk wherever they want in this city, free of harassment and intimidation and threats because of what they did, which is being a good citizen," said CPS Inspector Cliff O'Brien of the Major Crimes Unit.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
