Especially Hard To Take When A Victim Is Totally Innocent
11 July 2008 | by (Lockport, NY, United States) – See all my reviews

Both of these cases take place in Miami, Fla, with two different lead detectives. One is a series regular: Det. Fernando Bosch while the other is Det. Emilano Tamayo.

In Tamayo's case, police get a frantic 911 call stating, "The bullets are flying everywhere! It turns out two men were in a shootout right in front of a small convenience story. The sad story is that a customer inside, Jessica Dixon, 23, was struck with one of the bullets and died. Here is a totally innocent victim; just someone out buying groceries. The police officers in this case are bothered a great deal by this, as they hate to see innocent people senselessly killed. Most people would agree with them.

People knew that two people were shooting because a video camera caught one of them on tape. He had fled the scene, as well as the killer who had come by in his car. They quickly scour the hospitals and find their man. At first, he won't talk but when detectives show him a picture of the innocent victim, he breaks down. The man has a heart. After shedding some real tears, he gives them a first name: Corey. Police find out his full name through a marriage database at the station (computer lists). "Wow, it's just one more reason why not to get married," cracks one wise-guy cop after the database reveals their man.

The postscript to this case was a shock: after all that work, the witness gets cold feet and refuses to cooperative and the killer, Corey D. Harris, is let free! Bosch heads up a force that has to go to the "Little Haiti" section of Miami to find witnesses. A man had been gunned down, but his girlfriend had been face-to-face with the killer. His gun was out of bullets or she would have been murdered, too. The woman, Clara, knows him as a former classmate named "Steve." The cops get a yearbook and she spots his picture. Steve Stirlin has been identified. However, he proves hard to find, especially with neighborhoods which won't cooperate.

"It's a miracle that murders sometimes get solved around here," cracks one cop.

It took four months but they got him.
