Description

Donna Hall's son was murdered at an Austin Popeyes restaurant on Jan. 18, 2013. Almost a year later, she's still looking for answers, but due to the threat of living near the murderer and any accomplices, Hall and her family all moved over 500 miles south of Austin, Chicago. She believes there was a lot the police could have done with her case--her biggest evidence is a surveillance camera she said was manually turned away from the direction the shooter shot from. The other cameras weren't working and were left untouched--which Det. Vince Alonzo confirmed to me during my interview. This led to a conclusion that the shooter had insider knowledge--someone must have told the shooter and accomplices which cameras were working and which were not... Hall said the camera was not dusted for prints. Det. Alonzo would not confirm this.
