Aliza Spencer’s Dad Makes Plea for Tips in Shooting Investigation
Fifty weeks after his 12-year-old daughter was fatally shot while he walked with her, the father of Aliza Spencer has made an emotional request for the public's assistance.
Fred Spencer issued the plea during a news conference at Binghamton City Hall.
Aliza died shortly after she was shot in the chest shortly after 10 p.m. April 21. She was wounded as she strolled with her father and brother on Bigelow Street near the family's home on the city's East Side.
Spencer called on anyone who may have information about the killing to come forward to help police investigators find the person who fired the fatal shot.
Detectives have said they've worked to follow up all the tips they've received since the shooting. Investigators have declined to publicly discuss any possible theories about what happened or how the shooter fled the area.
A reward fund for information in the case has grown to $32,000. Area residents in recent months have been making donations to increase the reward.
