Tacoma Police detectives need your help to identify the suspect(s) responsible for the murders of 19 year-old Kimberly Riley and 5 year-old Jeremy Britt-Bayinthavong.
At 10:05 p.m. on Thursday November 28th, 2002, victims Kimberly Riley and Jeremy Britt-Bayinthavong were attending a family gathering for Thanksgiving at a house in the 1000 block of S. 75th St. in Tacoma. Unidentified suspect(s) walked up to the house and fired multiple shots through the downstairs windows, killing Britt-Bayinthavong and Riley, and injuring two others inside of the house.
Witnesses saw an unidentified suspect run from the front of the house, and an unidentified dark colored 1970’s to 1980’s full sized Ford pickup truck with a light colored canopy was seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed with its headlights turned off.

Thoughts? 14 years on this won't be an easy case to solve but hopefully someone will do the right thing and come forward with information. Was Kimberly, Jeremy or anyone in that house the actual target of the gunman? This may also be a case of mistaken identity as we have seen several times as well.
I can't believe I've never heard of this case before. At the very least I doubt 5-year old Jeremy was the target of anybody, but when you shoot into a house for any reason, you obviously don't care about the safety of anyone in there.
