    Torres is not talking to investigators, but they now believe him to be the main suspect in the June 18 killing of Luis Acevedo on the 2800 block of North Lawrence Street in Fairhill.

    The description of the car involved in that murder matched a car Torres drove at the time. Shortly after the slaying, he traded it in for the BMW he crashed Tuesday, police sources said. Investigators believe Torres killed Acevedo, 46, because he owed him money over drugs. On Tuesday night, crime scene investigators recovered a 9mm handgun from Torres' home as well as about $40,000 to $50,000 worth of packaged ready-to-sell heroin. The .45-caliber handgun he allegedly used to shoot Davies was stolen in a June 2012 from a retired suburban officer in a Northeast Philadelphia burglary.
