    FL - Shawn Mulkin, 44, murdered in Orlando, FL 27 Dec 2005

    There's not much online about this murder. The Orlando Sentinel originally reported that:
    In the third attack, Shawn Mulkin, 44, died at about 10:38 p.m. after two armed men forced their way into his home at Hawthorne Groves Apartment Homes on Good Homes Road, reports said. A neighbor, Daniel Canada, 22, had been smoking a cigarette outside when one of the robbers thrust a pistol into his face and ordered, "Don't look at me. Turn around," according to reports.Once inside, the men forced Canada, Shawn and Eva Mulkin, 45, to lie on the floor while they ransacked the apartment. That's when Shawn Mulkin jumped up and fought with the taller of the robbers, who appeared to be about 16 years old and about 6 feet tall, reports show.
    The fight spilled outside, where the robber shot Mulkin, apparently striking his left hand before inflicting the fatal wound, reports show. The killers fled.

    The Orlando media never really followed up on this crime. I'm told that the police circulated a photo of a ring stolen in the attack, but it's not archived online. Sketches of both suspects were also made, but the only website currently archiving those drawings is a white supremacist website, on their "Dark Crime" page. I won't post a link; just google "Shawn Mulkin".

    Incredibly, these sketches are not even posted on the page that the investigating agency, the Orange County Sheriff's Office, has devoted this unsolved murder. Rather, this agency, already noted for the crackerjack job it did prosecuting Casey Anthony, has posted a driver's license photo of the victim. Since he was killed by two strangers, it makes absolutely no sense how a copy of the victim's driver's license photo is supposed to spawn tips, but since trying to call the OCSD on the matter is essentially a one-way ticket to voice menu purgatory, it seems obvious that the Sheriff's office is content to keep this case unsolved.

    In fact, I can't even post a direct link to his OCSD page on his case, so I'll just paste the info here:

    That's right--the page doesn't even provide a description of the two suspects.

    I don't know what sickens me more--the crime itself, or the media/public/law enforcement apathy about searching for the killers.
