From the fbi.gov website:
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the deaths of Carnell E. Sledge and Katherine C. Brown. Additional reward money may be available.
The FBI's Cleveland Field Office and the Cleveland Metroparks Police Department in Ohio are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the person or persons responsible for the deaths of two victims.
On June 4, 2019, at approximately 5:00 p.m., longtime friends Carnell E. Sledge and Katherine C. Brown arrived at the Rocky River Reservation in Fairview Park, Ohio. Both met at a pull-off lot north of the Lorain Road bridge. Sledge and Brown were shot in the head while sitting on a bench alongside the river. Sledge was 40 years old at the time of his death, and Brown was 33 years old at the time of her death.
Submit a Tip:
Anyone with information regarding these murders is asked to call the FBI's Cleveland Field Office at (216) 622-6842, the Cleveland Metroparks Police Department at (440) 331-5219, or Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County at (216) 252-7463. Tips can also be submitted at tips.fbi.gov.
You may also contact your local FBI office, or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
Thoughts? One weird aspect to this tragic case now on the FBI website is that despite the description of Carnell and Katherine as longtime friends, not many people who knew Carnell knew Katherine as well, including Carnell's parents, according to one online article: www.cleveland.com/news/2019/06/parents-of-homicide-victim-carnell-sledge-did-not-know-woman-killed-with-him.html
What is most important is solving this case. I can only speculate but I hope this was not a racially motivated crime as one unfortunately theory I fear cannot be ruled out is the killer being angry at what he perceived to be a interracial couple (whether they were dating or not, the killer could have perceived it that way). In any case, there is no good reason to gun down two innocent people and both Carnell and Katherine's families deserve justice.
