    Officials ask for help as Rocky River murders remain a mystery

    FBI emphasizes brazen nature of Rocky River murders while asking for public's help

    "They arrived in separate vehicles at approximately 5:04 p.m. to the pull-off lot north of the Lorain Bridge. They exited their vehicles and sat on the park bench along the river. Within minutes of their arrival, they were shot in the head, sometime between 5:08 and 5:15 p.m. "

    Investigators pleading for information about suspect responsible for double homicide at Rocky River Reservation

    "The two victims were friends for more than 10 years, but authorities do not believe that there was any sort of romantic relationship between the two."

    Homicide victim Carnell Sledge seemed fine hours before he died, co-worker says

    "Hours before his violent death in a Cleveland MetroParks, Carnell Sledge spoke to a co-worker at Cleveland-based Crescent Digital and showed no signs of distress, the co-worker told cleveland.com..."

    Sounds like one of the two was being tracked by a Mad Spouse.

    Very disturbing, sad case. Carnell Sledge sounds like he was a great person. Thanks for posting. Surprised that LE doesn't have any leads yet. Good thing some of the local news media are still covering the story.

    According to the link above, LE doesn't believe there was any romantic relationship between the two victims. They were shot during broad daylight while sitting on a park bench next to Rocky River.

    This is a very safe area, not usually frequented by criminals. There would have been other people walking, jogging or driving through the park. It's very busy there, with a marina and many restaurants nearby. There have been some hate groups active on that side of town in recent years, actually not far from this location. The groups themselves may not be involved, but someone might have been peeved at seeing a mixed race couple in the park. It's not something you would normally see in that area.

    A $20,000 reward is being offered through Crime Stoppers

    Anyone with information should call the Cleveland Metroparks Police tip line at 440-331-5219 or Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County at 216-252-7463.

    More news stories. It looks like police are getting tips from the public

    Tips but still no arrests made in Rocky River murders

    The FBI is helping out. The killings happened during a very busy time in the park when a lot of people would be driving, biking, etc. Very bold move by the killer/s. Either someone very angry or mentally ill/on drugs.

    The "Who Killed Amy Mihaljevic?" podcast did an episode on this case that included primarily the audio from the press conference.

    Unfortunately the website is set up kind of oddly.... If you subscribe to the podcast, it's episode 21, released July 1.
