Family Blasts Police over Raid At Residence Following Murder  

A family in Crooked Tree Village has turned to the media to say that they do not appreciate the manner in which the police department is handling the investigation when they searched their home sometime after midnight this morning. According to an uncle of four of the persons who were detained, police initially arrived without a search warrant and kicked in his elderly parents’ door, after which their surveillance cameras captured the policemen rifling through personal belongings that the family feels had nothing to do with a murder investigation. One of the relatives, who did not want to leave his name out of fear that the police might go back to intimidate him, told us via phone their version of how the search went.
