Two Suspects Acquitted; Where Are The Killers?

As I noted in this post, Anthony R. Lee, 18, and Lamarr Lucky Smith, 20, both of Minneapolis, were acquitted for the murder of Martin Ruiz. The available evidence wasn't sufficient to convict them. This article from WCCO News provides a good description of the outcome of the case.

Various people have expressed concern that if these two didn't do it, then who did?

The killers of Martin Ruiz, whoever they may be, need to be found forthwith. Evidence needs to be developed to ensure a successful prosecution of the suspects once they are identified. And this all needs to happen sooner rather than later, because a couple of stone cold killers are walking the streets of Minneeapolis, in all likelihood, and no one should have any doubt they'll strike again.

Let's give the police the tools they need to close this case.

If anyone has any information regarding the cold-blooded killing of Martin Ruiz, call the Minneapolis police. Here is their contact information page. If anyone knows if there is an anonymous tip line, please post it in the comments.
