DETROIT, MI – There are many on social media who will whip up rumors and lies that end up creating hysteria in the community when it is completely needless.
Detroit Police posted to Facebook the following information that every Detroit resident should read:
There is false information circulating on social media that there is a serial killer at large in downtown Detroit, and that five to six female victims have been found in dumpsters prior to the May 15 homicide on Robert Bradby Drive on Detroit’s east side, and further that Detroit Police have failed to communicate this information to the public.
This is not true.
We have identified a person of interest in connection to the incident on Robert Bradby and we are actively investigating.
If anyone has any information pertaining to any of these crimes, they are asked to contact Detroit Police Department Homicide Unit at 313-596-2260, or CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
