Unsolved Cold Cases in Buffalo
Speaking of shootings, there are tons of unsolved cold cases in Buffalo. I was looking at the Crime Stoppers website and 2018 seemed to be a rough year. There were multiple shootings, within days of each other, and many of them haven't been solved. Tonya Harvey was shot and killed on February 6, 2018, on Shepherd Street in Buffalo. Her mother, Arnester Harvey, told Spectrum News,
"There is still no justice. We want justice. Our community is not safe, we're not safe. So, we're asking for justice."
Tonya was a transgender woman and her loved ones believe that is why she was targeted. Please contact Crime Stoppers WNY at 716-867-6161 if you have any info about her death.
Douglas Johnson was also killed on the same day in 2018. Police haven't solved his case yet. He was shot on Wick Street in Buffalo.
