FBI Helps Local Police Crack 7-Year Cold Case

FBI agents moved into a local police station in Mountain View, Calif. in January of last year and reopened a 6-year-old cold case, reports Mountain View Patch. This week, three arrests were made in the case, a fatal drive-by shooting of a 17-year-old.

“The FBI resources and technology were very valuable to this case,” Mountain View Police spokeswoman Liz Wylie told Patch “This case has been hanging over our heads for years.”

Wylie said that despite a $10,000 reward offering and some early leads, local police were not able to identify any suspects in the slaying in Mountain View, which is in the San Francisco Bay area.

“We never stopped thinking about it, but [the case] stalled,” she said. Then, in january of 2010, a gang task force comprised of “two FBI special agents, two MVPD detectives and one from the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety breathed new life into the homicide case,” Patch reported.

“They re-interviewed everyone involved and got new tips and leads,” Wylie said. “The story started to unravel into a new picture.”
