Detroit Says It Knows Who Killed Stripper Tamara Greene

greene tamara Detroit Says It Knows Who Killed Stripper Tamara GreeneThe city of Detroit says it knows who killed stripper Tamara Greene in 2003 but wants to keep that and other information secret while its investigation continues.

A lawyer for the city made those revelations Monday in a motion asking a federal judge to let Detroit file a sealed request to dismiss a lawsuit by Greene’s family.

The family has sued the city and ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick over what they say was a deliberately bungled investigation.

Greene has long been rumored to have danced at a party at the mayor’s official residence.

The motion says that to defend itself, the city would have to compromise its investigation by disclosing evidence identifying the killer and an informant.

A Greene family lawyer says the court could seal evidence later.

    I’m trying to figure out what the investigation is about. If the murderer is known why are they not arrested? If it is to gather more facts to build a case, say that. This is starting to look like a delaying tactic by “Detroit” to try and have everyone forget about this case. As if! Keep this case front and center.
