“Frank Tepper murdered Billy Panas. He had his entire life ahead of him. Don’t let anybody tell you that he deserved it.” — Assistant District Attorney Michael Barry
Last weekend began in bloodshed in Northeast Philadelphia as a Wissinoming man stabbed his cousin to death on Friday night inside the apartment they shared, according to police.
Philadelphia police have released surveillance video of the Jan. 25 armed robbery of a Holme Circle drug store and say that the same unknown bandit is responsible for at least three similar crimes elsewhere in the Northeast.
The disgraced former Philadelphia police officer who stole $825 from a business where a fellow officer had been fatally shot was ordered on Thursday to repay the cash, along with a $5,000 fine, and serve five years probation.
