SPD teams up with Silent War Campaign

The Seattle Police Department has partnered with the Silent War Campaign in an effort to bring attention to the unsolved murder case of Tyrone Love and other cases like his.  Reverend Harriett Walden was present, along with Homicide Lieutenant Steve Wilske and Tyrone Love’s two surviving sisters, Gwendolyn Love and Christyna Bradford.

“We believe that murder and other crimes of violence are unacceptable.  We also know the impact that these crimes have on the people who are affected and the communities in which they occur.  Silence is not an option.  People need to come forward and speak to the police about what they know, in this case and others,” said Reverend Walden.  

“Tyrone Love was by all accounts a decent and hardworking young man who was on his way home from his job in Pioneer Square when he was murdered near this spot in the early morning hours of January 16, 2009.  We are asking members of the community to please call us with anything they may know about his murder, or anything they may have heard about it since that morning, no matter how insignificant it may seem to be,” said Lieutenant Wilske. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the Homicide tip line at (206) 233-5000.  Anonymous tips are welcome.  Calls are taken 24 hours a day. 

Those not wanting to call police directly may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800 222-TIPS (8477) or send a text to CRIMES (274637).  Your text message should include “TIP486” to ensure proper routing. If a tip leads to an arrest and the filing of charges, callers may qualify for a cash reward of up to $1000.
