Detectives Matthew Sellers and Emily Destefanis worked tirelessly over the last three days to facilitate the arrest of James Brown and deliver justice to the victim’s family”, said Chief Doug Baker. “Good police work is always imperative on complex investigations. There is also a great need for community participation in order to hold violent offenders accountable.”
