Video Surveillance Cameras Help Police in Pa. Arrest Suspected Killer
Police say Shamir Hunter was seen on security camera footage in the area where Steven Esworthy was beaten to death while walking home from his brother’s wedding.
HARRISBURG, Pa. — A suspected killer is behind bars here thanks to the assistance of several video surveillance cameras.
Police say Shamir Hunter, 19, can be seen on video surveillance in the area where Steven Esworthy was beaten to death while walking home from his brother’s wedding. The security camera footage helped identify Hunter after police received several tips on who was in the video footage, according to ABC 27.
The report also suggests that Hunter’s motive was to mug Esworthy for money to get synthetic marijuana and that Hunter unknowingly killed the victim.
Now, police are hoping to expand its database of private security cameras by asking residents and business owners to register the cameras to help aid investigations.
With the results of this investigation, it’s hard to argue against the idea.
