SEATTLE COPS CLOSE TO SOLVING '94 DOUBLE SLAYING
Just after midnight on Jan. 27, 1994, a group of killers came up the steps of an apartment and banged on the door. The group was let in. Inside were Aalihya Brown and Nairobi Bass and it's believed that the pair knew their killers. Their bodies were found a short time later. Cops say the killers were after drugs in
the apartment. Aalihya Brown was just 16 -- and pregnant. Her boyfriend, Nairobi, was only 17. At the time of the murders, detectives interviewed the neighbors and they collected evidence from the apartment. But they still lacked that critical clue that will solve the case.
Det. Mike Ciesynski said: "We really feel that we are getting very, very close."
Nairobi's dad, Ed Bass said he hopes that something comes out of the renewed focus on the case - for his son and for himself. He said: "He deserves to get some closure. I deserve closure."
If you know anything about the case - call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. All calls are anonymous. There's a $1,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction. SEATTLE DOUBLE MURDER CLOSE TO SOLVED?
