On Tuesday, December 2, 2008, at 10:00 a.m., the Sacramento Police Department will hold a press conference at the Public Safety Center (5770 Freeport Boulevard). The purpose of the press conference is to announce a reward being offered for the unsolved homicide of Emanuel Michel.
The Carole Sund/Carrington Foundation will issue a total of $5,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible in the death of 18-year-old Emanuel Michel.
The Sacramento Police Department’s Homicide Unit’s investigation has revealed that on October 18, 2008, a group of approximately 20 young people were socializing at 2101 57th Ave. Another group of males tried to enter the party, but were asked to leave. The two groups got into a verbal confrontation with the unwanted guests who were referencing gang affiliations. As the unwanted guests drove off, someone fired several rounds into the home, killing Emanuel Michel.
Despite an exhaustive effort on the part of homicide detectives, and other department personnel, the investigation has yielded few leads.
Representatives from the Carole Sund/Carrington Foundation, the lead detectives from the Sacramento Police Department’s Homicide Unit, and the victim’s family will be available for interviews at this press conference.
