GRPD seeks help from Arizona, Ohio & Wisconsin to find person of interest in double murder

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Grand Rapids Police Department has reached out to media and police in several states to find answers after the murder of Cherletta Baber-Bey and Keyona Griffin.

In a Facebook post, the department said they contacted officials in Milwaukee, Columbus and Phoenix in hopes of finding Derrell Brown, who is wanted for questioning for the double murder case from March of 2019. The department also says their investigation has revealed that Brown has family connected to those areas.

Previously, a judge ordered investigators to send Brown to Grand Rapids wherever in the U.S. that he may be picked up. A reward of $2,000 is also being offered for tips on his current location.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Silent Observer over the phone at 616-774-2345, or on their website, silentoberver.org.

    Comparatively speaking,this is similar to the Underground Railroad of the Civil War era–when blacks helped slaves get to the North. Now–and this takes place everywhere,but is very noticeable in Grand Rapids–blacks help other blacks (who are suspected felons and murderers )escape the police in a concerted effort to evade justice for their actions, What kind of mindset would agree to this?Is it because they believe murder should not be punished?
    Yet we see these b.s. meetings with blacks and the media( or police)that the blacks “want this to stop.”
    How can it stop when murderers are protected and moved out of state? You don’t think they’ll kill again elsewhere?
    Until blacks start to treat crime seriously,none of the crime that say they detest– will ever stop.
