GREENWICH - The attorney for the man accused of murdering Greenwich real estate developer Andrew Kissel has taken his fight for justice online.

Mark Sherman, defense attorney for murder suspect Leonard Trujillo, has launched a Web site for people to share information on Kissel's death. The attorney says the page will help bring out the truth in the crime.

"[Trujillo] did not commit this murder, and a Web site like this is going to be helpful for us to find the real killer in this case," says Sherman.

Sherman's client was charged with the murder two years after Kissel's body was discovered stabbed to death in his basement. Trujillo's cousin, Carlos Trujillo, faces conspiracy charges for his alleged role in the murder.

The attorney hopes the promise of anonymity will encourage witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

"It's helpful for us in a high-profile case like this to streamline tips and allow people to confidentially submit tips to the Web site," says Sherman. "Sometimes, people tend to share more information if they know that their identity is going to be protected."

Police set up a confidential tip line in 2006. They say it did not bring many useful leads to their investigation.
