On Thursday, members of the Winter Haven Police Department and family members of Demetrick Brown canvassed the neighborhood along MLK Jr. Blvd. passing out fliers and posting signs in hopes of garnering additional information leading to the arrest of Brown’s killer. The reward has increased to $10,000.
Demetrick was in a crowd at a pop-up block party on July 4 along Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd when he was shot and killed.
“With all of the people in the crowd that night, we are confident someone has video that could be the piece we need to find closure for this family,” said Police Chief David Brannan.
