The Major Case Sqaud on Monday announced they had solved a double murder in East St Louis with the arrest of a 19-year-old suspect.
What was interesting was that police say they had received over 100 tips on the case in the week they investigated it.
It was a strong showing of people's concern over the crime and the desire for justice. It wasn't lost on police and the mayor who also expressed satisfaction and pride over that fact.
It's obvious that when police have the public's help, justice can move quickly.
