Canadian police post YouTube video to solve murder

Posted by Humphrey Cheung

Hamilton police may have solved a murder by posting surveillance tape footage to YouTube. 22-year-old Ryan Miller was stabbed to death at a hip-hop concert on November 17th. Hoping to reach the teenager and early 20-year-old demographic, police posted up surveillance footage of security guards searching concert goers. The one-minute video apparently spooked the suspect so much that he turned himself in.

The video was uploaded earlier this month and has already been viewed several thousand times. The suspect turned himself in to police yesterday and will be charged with murder and attempted murder. A second suspect has also been caught.
