Family Wants Justice for Son Killed in Triple Homicide
A Kansas City family feels the search for their son’s killer should be just an intense as the search for a missing baby. Three victims were found in what police called a violent murder scene in September. Stacy Roberson, 21, Raymond Hill, 20, and 23-year-old Phillip Hall lost their lives.
Now, Roberson’s parents say there’s a witness who refuses to help police bring the killer to justice. Patrick Thomas is having a tough time doing his job. That’s because his stepson, Stacy Roberson is no longer by his side. In September, someone gunned Roberson down in an apartment execution style. He was one victim in a triple murder on Linwood Blvd.
“There should be a very serious manhunt for this killer,” said Patrick Thomas. “Because we’re talking a triple killing. This is cold blood. We have a cold blooded killer. Maybe a serial killer running around and law enforcement doesn’t seem to want a put a serious grip on this guy. You shouldn’t be able to kill people like that and have no remorse, no concern.”
What’s particularly frustrating for Thomas and his wife, is they believe there was another man in the apartment around the time of the shootings who could identify the killer. But they say this man refuses to be a witness for police for fear of being portrayed as a snitch.
“I think they call him MeMe,” said Kathy Thomas . “Which was a brother to one of the deceased. If you know anything MeMe please get to the police department. Help them solve this crime.”
The Thomas’ have learned the name of a potential suspect, someone who they thought was their son’s friend.
But they say he and his whole family moved away shortly after the shootings. They say while police attention and resources are focused on finding a missing Northland baby, the couple can’t help but feel like a dangerous killer is getting away with murder.
Kansas City Police say they are not ignoring the case and continue to pursue what they call some very strong leads. If you have any information on this murder, please call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
