I’m working on a story looking back at the shooting death of Edward Kriz, 43, outside the Hamburg Inn No. 2. on Nov. 10, 1962.
Kriz’s killer has never been convicted, even though authorities arrested a prime suspect in the case just a few months after the crime.
That man was released because prosecutors felt the evidence wouldn’t amount to guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. My article, scheduled to run on the 50th anniversary Saturday, sheds new lights on why the suspect was released and what detectives are doing today to keep the investigation alive.
