ANTIOCH (CBS SF) — After a surveillance camera photo of the suspect’s silver minivan was released over the weekend, Antioch detectives said Wednesday that new leads have produced sketches for two men now considered persons of interest in the August 29 Tioga Pass Way slaying of Daunzhay Young.
Investigators said additional surveillance video of the suspect vehicle was uncovered after their plea for the public’s help which shows a distorted image of the driver. A witness also came forward and helped a forensic artist compile a forensic sketch of the shooting suspect and driver.READ MORE: Vandals Smear Chauvin Defense Witness' Former Santa Rosa Home With Pig's Blood
