My heart goes out to the family of Wendy, the woman shot down Saturday night in the quarter.

I would like to comment about the sketches the police provided to the public. The sketches represent the hair and apparent age of the kids who robbed me, Billy and our friend. However, the two boys were about the same height- there was definitely NOT a ten inch difference between the two boys. This leads me to believe that this may not be the same duo. I distinctly remember that both of the boys were small. The kid that I dealt with directly had twists, but I did not get the sense that he was 5'10''.
A detective left me a message to contact him about a week after Billy was contacted. We called back but our call has not been returned.

So these three kids weren't one and the same? Not the ones who mugged you?

We were mugged by two kids who looked similar to these sketches. The heights are so far off, though.

These two were turned in by their moms the other day are being tried as adults after confessing to the killing of Wendy Byrne. There is still another suspect on the lose wanted for that crime, but that guy was not present at our mugging.
