Thank you, dotr! I appreciate the response!Welcome to Ws!
If you have a news link, a thread can be started to get the ball rolling.
Here are a couple of links related to the story that I mentioned. The young man's name was Ja'Len Deandre Lindsey. He was a 19 year old, recent high school graduate. It was a truly heartbreaking loss and I can't figure out why this case hasn't gone anywhere.
First, I would like to honor him by linking to his obituary:

Next, a news article with video attached from a year later of his mother at a gathering in his memory, hoping to bring more attention to the case:
‘We want justice for Ja’Len’: Memorial held to honor 1 year anniversary of 19-year-old’s murder
This article is from WOWO radio (the day of the shooting):
UPDATED: July 4th party turns deadly in Fort Wayne
The latest update to the case has been a Crime Stoppers short that I've only seen played on-air a hand full of times and, for some reason, I haven't been able to find a link to it. It has been said since the beginning that some of the friends were giving information to police. There were over 100 potential witnesses at the party that night. Someone knows something. I honestly have no idea where to start with something like this, but I am really interested in learning the ropes. My uncle was a detective for 25 years and I always admired him for that. He truly cared about each and every case that he was involved with. I'd like to thank anyone who is willing to give me a few pointers or just kind of lead me in a direction to get started.
P.S. Does anyone get nervous when they start sleuthing? :\
