Why can’t they just let the police do their jobs?

First, with data privacy laws, I have to wonder what type of information this phony bunch of do-gooders get.  Since it is still an active investigation, the only information that should be made public has already been disseminated.  Does this board think they will contribute anything to an ongoing investigation?

The Duluth Police Department is working around the clock investigating the recent fatal shooting in the East Hillside neighborhood. The Duluth Citizens Review Board addressed what police are calling a homicide investigation.
At this point the police still aren’t saying much in the murder investigation of 22 year old, UMD student, William Grahek.

The Citizen Review Board asked Duluth Police Chief, Mike Tusken to address the six shootings that happened in a 24 day span this year.
In five of the cases, he says that the victim and the shooter knew each other and the shootings weren’t random, posing no threat to public’s safety. When asked if he could say the same for Grahek’s shooting, Tusken said she could not confirm that at this time. They currently have people of interest and leads in the investigation but no one in custody.
Police say Grahek was in his home when he was fatally shot.
Tusken says the police force has been actively investigating the shooting. “The sixth shooting is a homicide, we’ve been doing a substantial about of investigative work on that. Around the clock, through the weekend, for the last week some of our investigators have been working 16-17 hours a day.”

“The police force strength comes from the community and they highly encourage if you see suspicious activity in your area to say something to the police to help secure the safety of your neighborhood,” he added.

The Police Chief had also said he reached out a resident in the East Hillside neighborhood who was feeling rattled because she has a son around the same age as Will Grahek and felt unsafe. He assured her that the Duluth police have increased their patrol force and are doing all they can to keep communities safe.

Police believe they have identified a possible motive in the case of Grahek. The investigation is highly active at time so they can’t say what that motive is.
