Chief: Cheyenne Police Angry Over Double Homicide
Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak says he and his officers are taking a recent double homicide in the city personally and are doing everything possible to catch the killer.
On July 20 at around 9:30 a.m. someone shot 67 year old Dwight Brockman and 76 year old George Manley to death in The Coin Shop, a West Lincolnway business owned by Brockman.
Policed released a sketch of the suspect later that day and later released an updated sketch with significant changes from the original. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male between 5'6 and 5'8 who was wearing a dark shirt at the time of the killings.
In a July 28 interview Kozak said his officers take the double homicide personally, adding "This really pisses us off because fine, upstanding citizens in our community were gunned down". He says police are working long hours "following up on every lead that comes in".
He also says that during the recent Cheyenne Frontier Days celebration--traditionally the busiest time of the year for Cheyenne Police--finding the killer took top priority over anything else, and says that is still true now,
