1 Individual Sought for Lamb/Almendarez Murders – They Are Not Related

Alejandro Cowo

A pair of relatives is being laid to rest this weekend, following a series of murders in the Lake Independence area over the past few days.  The family and friends of twenty-five-year-old Shaqwuan Almendarez bade him farewell today, while his killer is still at large.  According to ASP Alejandro Cowo, an all points bulletin has been issued for the apprehension of a suspect, also believed to be the hit man in the murder of forty-two-year-old Sydney Lamb.  The lead investigator told the media this morning that while they are looking for one individual, it is believed that the murders are unrelated.

“Based on those two investigations, we are confident that we have a person that we are looking for at this very moment.  We have sent an all-formation message to the entire country looking for a suspect and as soon as we have that person, definitely I can guarantee you that we will have an arrest for those murders.”

“Have you established whether those two murders are in any way related?”


ASP Alejandro Cowo

“No, no.  They are separate incidents.”



“So you’re seeking separate suspects?”


ASP Alejandro Cowo

“It is possibly the same suspects but different circumstances.”



“Two different circumstances, two different motivations.”


ASP Alejandro Cowo

“Two different motivations, it might be the same suspect. Yes.”
