Hello All, This is my first post here. I was turned on to this site last night by a friend. My brother was brutally murdered in San Diego August 31 2000. He was 22 years old at the time. I was 23. He was my only sibling and best friend. His name is Sergio Sprandel. My mother, father, and myself are desperate for any help in finding a way to bring his killer to justice. The SDPD have brushed this case under the carpet and really botched the case in the first crucial days of investigation. It is now a cold case but the SDPD cold case unit has not done anything in a very long time. Our monthly inquires with the unit are met with polite brush offs and disregard. There is ample evidence pointing to the individual suspect, who is still free. Yet the police do nothing, no questioning, no follow ups, nothing. As you can imagine the deep hole that is left in our lives. We have no closure and there has been no justice for our beloved Sergio. We are desperate for assistance. The SDPD are not going to do anything and we do not know where to turn anymore. We strongly feel that there is enough evidence to bring the suspect to justice, but know that the case has been simply forgotten about by the SDPD with their huge case load. We plead with all of you, can you point us in any direction or help with any ideas. We have thought of news venues, talk shows, crime stoppers, etc.. Please help. Thank you for your time. This August 31st will be the 10 year anniversary of his death.
