Update King murders – Investigators analyze video footage from ten locationsPOSTED: 09/28/12 12:25 PM
St. Maarten – Police are currently investigating all information that was gathered the past few days during the investigation of the Michael and Thelma King murders. “To get a good overview of all relevant information, analysts and detectives are running through all statements in combination with technical data such as information retrieved from telephones from the victims and the suspect who was apprehended,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement issued last night.
New witnesses were questioned today, the release stated, adding that this process may go on for a few more days. “Based on statements of earlier witnesses, other names of possible witnesses come up. Besides that, a vast amount of video-footage has to be studied for all relevant details. Police retrieved camera footage from over 10 locations. This all has to be studied and that is time consuming.”
The prosecution is preparing requests for assistance to the US authorities, the prosecutor’s office stated.” Especially information about the victims’ background and from people close to them could be relevant for the investigation. This is where the help of the FBI could come in. This would make these investigations go faster and smoother.”
