DETROIT (WWJ) – Police have released a composite sketch of the suspect believed to be responsible for killing a 61-year-old foster dad in the Woodbridge Historic District on Detroit’s east side.

Christopher Best was found shot to death around 7:20 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 21 outside of a residence in the 4500 block of Avery, between Forest Avenue and Lysander Street.
