Police have discovered the suspect’s clothing from this morning’s gas station murder, and they cordoned off part of Taco Bell’s parking lot on 15th Ave.
A man who lives in an apartment on 59th St. said he discovered a bag of clothing Sunday morning, but he said he didn’t think much of it because people frequently throw things over the fence from Taco Bell. “I turned on the 5 p.m. news and they were talking about the robbery and the murder,” Pat told us. “They showed the bandana on his face and his stocking cap and I go, ’son of a bitch!’ and I ran downstairs and ran outside and it was his stuff.” He said he called 911, and police arrived a couple minutes later.
Meanwhile, the investigation is complete at the crime scene, and the gas station reopened for business Sunday evening. People are leaving a few flowers and candles in front of the business. (Thanks Lisa for the tip!)
