SOMEONE KNOWS SOMETHING!
Family Needs Answers In Senseless Murder
Chris Bartholomew was a young man with many goals. And one of them was to someday work as a police officer. However, on May 20, 2007, a senseless act not only cut Chris’ hopes and dreams short — it cut his life short. Now the 21-year-old’s family is looking for justice.
That night, Chris was out with friends at a Kansas City area night spot. Chris and his friends were known as good kids, but that couldn’t save them from what happened next: cops say the details are hazy, but they believe Chris fell victim to a gunfight that he had nothing to do with. Cops are unsure who the shooters were, but they say Chris got caught up in the crossfire.
Unfortunately, there are few clues to help police identify the shooters, and even worse, Chris died as a result of his injuries.
While nothing will bring Chris back, his family and friends hope that someone out there can bring them the answers and justice they deserve, and they have put up a $30,000 reward in hopes of closing this case for good.
Cops in Kansas City, Mo. say there were four cars involved in the shooting that killed 21-year-old Chris Bartholomew.
The first one was a Dodge Charger, whose occupants have been identified. Cops now want to know who was inside the other three cars: a 2003 Isuzu Rodeo, a 2007 Pontiac G6 and a brown car, which police believes was filled with people aligned with the passengers of the Dodge Charger.
Investigators on this case are very frustrated because they say this is a hard case to prosecute.
Det. Janice Heins says the biggest challenge is the fact that there were four cars involved, so many guns and so many people involved who aren’t talking.
Det. Heins believes that the only way to solve this case is if the people involved come forward with information.
