The investigation into the brutal murder of a NorthEast Lubbock family continues. One year later, police tell us the suspect is still at large. NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta brings us this update.
On October 25th, 2004 a family friend found the bodies of Tammy Cooper and her three children brutally murdered at the apartments located at 512 North Martin Luther King Boulevard. Right Now authorities are still looking for the person responsible.
Police say the family of four was killed with the use of a sharp instrument and blunt force trauma. The investigation has led authorities to the Dallas area, where the family used to live, and even as far as California. Investigators tell us Tammy was talking on the phone with a friend when the suspect arrived at the family's home. They say this information has given them clues that could lead to the suspect. "We've been able to determine the suspect that entered the home was a black male that arrived there alone, knew the victim and was also possibly known by the children," says Lubbock Police Detective Rey Martinez.
If you have any information that could help authorities solve this case, they urge you call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000. Callers can remain anonymous. Investigators tell us a reward is available for any information that leads to the capture of the suspect.
