TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo is asking anyone to come forward regarding recent acts of violent crime in the Capital City.

Suspects are still at large for many of the most recent crimes.

With the addition of the three most recent violent acts, 11 cases in Tallahassee now remain unsolved, and those 11 cases only span from October 1 of this year to now.

"As hard as our investigators are working, we cannot find justice for our victims without your help," he said in a video posted to the City of Tallahassee Police Department's Facebook page.

In each case, he said, TPD knows that there are people with information that have not contacted police yet.

He asked that people with information call TPD at (850) 891 4200 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-8477.
