Important: Please Help

Blogger Mark O'Brien emailed me this morning with a link to this New York Post story about his son:
The father of a young man gunned down in front of his college buddy's Lower East Side apartment nearly two years ago has launched a Web site and upped the reward for finding his son's killer. Burke O'Brien, 25, was shot through the heart in January 2003 after he and his friend Forrest Bloede returned to Bloede's Orchard Street apartment from a night on the town. The killer or killers are still at large. Frustrated by the lack of leads in the case, the O'Brien family has upped the reward to $50,000 and launched a Web site, www.burkeobrien.org. The slain man's story will also be the subject of an episode of the controversial all-access show "NYPD 24/7." It will air tomorrow night on ABC. O'Brien's father, Mark, says it will be tough to watch, but he hopes the show will be seen by someone who knows what happened. "I want them captured," O'Brien said. "The key is more public exposure."
Please read the rest of the story. Link it on your blogs if you can. Give a link to the site Mark launched to help with the search for his son's killers. Watch the show tomorrow night. Perhaps if the word is spread, it will eventually reach somebody who knows something that will help the investigation. Mark feels more public exposure will help find the killers. Let's help him get that exposure. Our thoughts are with you and your family, Mark.

Many of us got that email, too.

For a while the cops were trying to pin it on the friend despite the fact that he said they were jumped by several guys.

I agree
