Any Updates in Michael Wallace Murder?

Michael Wallace

On May twenty-nine, twenty-five year old Michael Wallace was killed on the George Price Highway near the Mile Eight community. Michael, his brother Richard Wallace and a friend Edward Flowers were on their way back to the city after visiting the Central Prison in Hattieville for a family day when they were ambushed by gunmen from two vehicles that sandwiched them. Michael died on the spot while his brother and friend escaped unhurt. It’s been two weeks since that incident and police say that there are some persons of interest that are being sought.

 

ACP Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Rural Eastern Division

“We have some specific individuals that are being sought. As a matter of fact, we have an individual who withdrew the insurance for one of the vehicle, the Monday after the incident and we are seeking that individual for questioning. We have not been able to get any of them to do those interviews at this time, but we are still looking for them.”

“For which vehicle?”

“The blazer.”

“Mister Broaster also at that press brief that was held, you had mentioned that your officers were in the process of picking up a well-known figure for questioning with regards to that shooting. Has that been done and what actually came out of that?”

“A number of persons have been picked up and interviewed and released. Like I said, the cooperation of the victim…he has given us a statement but not identifying any specific individual so it is very difficult for us at this time in terms of getting suspects and interviewing them.”

 

Reporter

“You said before that you all expect some retaliation because of how the investigation is going so far. Any update to that and how the police is dealing with that situation?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Well we are still checking out certain information. There are certain things that I can’t reveal at this time because it would interfere with the investigation but we are following up with that shooting.”
