15-year-old Michael Garr was stabbed to death in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. His murder occurred near Bridge and Brunswick streets as he walked home from his girlfriend’s home in Clifton Heights, according to the police. That shocking murder occurred on the night of April 21st.
The Upper Darby Township Police Department released a brief statement on the matter on the night of May 1st, noting that the suspect remains at large but they are doing everything in their power to track him down and bring him to justice. In the police department’s words:
“We have asked the public for help in identifying a couple (holding hands) who we believed could provide us with information.
“That couple was identified, and we have spoken with them at length. We have also asked for help in identifying a male (Under Armour sweatshirt), who we now know, and with whom we have also spoken extensively.
“We have had an abundance of support from the community, and we have vetted every tip that has come our way.
“We want everyone to know we are working tirelessly to bring the person or people responsible for this horrific crime to justice. We ask that you be vigilant, report any suspicious activity to us immediately, and know we have officers in the area.”
Garr was laid to rest on Saturday, April 29th. Commenting on the funeral, William MacIntosh, a friend of Michael’s brother, said, “When they did the ‘Fly Eagles Fly,’ Michael would’ve loved that. “It was everything Michael would’ve wanted. He doesn’t deserve to be in a casket. He should still be at home, playing video games with his friends.”
Continuing, MacIntosh added, “Michael was an amazing person an amazing spirit, and I hope they find whoever did this to him because he did not deserve this whatsoever. What did Michael ever do to anyone. The kid was such a good kid. We’re all going to miss him so much.”
