Buffalo Police Need Help Solving Murder of Toddler
Buffalo Police need the community's help to solve a homicide of a 20-month-old.
The Buffalo Police Department is hoping to get the community's help to solve the 9-year-old cold case. A toddler, 20-month-old Jahaira Taylor, was killed in June of 2011. According to a WGRZ article from 2016, Crime Stoppers and the Buffalo Police are offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
Buffalo Police Captain Joseph Gramaglia told Spectrum News that BPD believes community members know information that can help them solve this case,
"We always believe there are people out there that know more than they think they know or more than they are willing to share with us. We're hoping in the case of a 20-month-old child, that we can appeal to people's conscience and come forward to provide us with information."
