Norwalk police ask for public's help catching suspects
Norwalk police are teaming up with a local newspaper to ask residents for help in catching some criminals.
The Norwalk Police Department is making information on their Most Wanted list available for the Norwalk Hour to print. They want to expand the number of eyes on the street looking for suspected murderers, bank robbers and drug dealers.
Police hope the public?s information will help them solve a 14-year-old murder case. Kirk Thompson, 38, is wanted for the 1993 murder of Stanley McKoy. Police say Thompson, known on the street as Crazy Kurt, is a fugitive from justice.
They are also looking for help in the 2005 murder of Thounsa Addison, 17, who was shot on the streets of the city. Detectives say the murder investigation has been met with a code of silence, leaving a killer on the loose.
Police are offering rewards for help apprehending suspects in some of the cases. However, they advise residents not to try to catch suspects on their own.
