Camden Officials, Victim's Father Plead For Help Solving 2006 Cold Case Murder

By David Madden

CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) -- Police in Camden, NJ, are hoping a public appeal paired with a $1,000 reward will help solve a nine-year-old murder mystery now being handled by the county's cold case squad.

"You know, it's not easy when you stand out here," said Andres Camacho, remembering the June 9, 2006 murder of his son, Andres III, outside a grocery store at Berwick Street and Marlton Pike in Camden.

"You say to yourself every time, when are we going to have closure?  And I hope that we do have a closure soon," he said today, as Camden County police and the prosecutor's office released newly enhanced video showing the victim and the shooter.


Investigators think that someone is holding back some evidence that might break this case wide open, and they hope the reward money, from the Citizens Crime Commission, helps shake it loose.

Contact police or the prosecutor if you have information on the case.  If you go through the Citizens Crime Commission (215-546-TIPS), you can remain anonymous and still be eligible for the reward.
