Police announced this week that they have identified a person of interest in the killing of local transwoman Kyra Kruz. Newly appointed LGBT liaison Deputy Commissioner Kevin Bethel said this week that progress is being made. “They believe they have identified a person of interest but there is still a lot of investigating to do. But they have moved in a more positive direction,” he said. “There are no witnesses or video, but they have made significant movement toward someone they believe may have committed this crime.” The person’s identity or details about the motive were not being released at presstime.
