Police Have New Lead In Murder Of Adams County Prosecutor

DENVER (CBS4) – Three years after An Adams County prosecutor was gunned down outside his home police have a new lead in the case.

Now police are hoping someone will recognize the men in surveillance pictures taken at a 7-Eleven. While they aren’t suspects, they could have key information about Sean May’s 2008 murder.

May was gunned down in broad daylight outside his home. At the time May’s wife was 6 months pregnant with their first child

“It was awful to lose Sean, but the trauma of the event is still continuing because we don’t know,” Adams County District Attorney Don Quick said.

Police are still looking for the killer, sifting through information and evidence recovered in the case and working hard to pursue leads.

“We’re always going back and reevaluating evidence, seeing what’s there, what might be germane,” Sonny Jackson with Denver police said.

The surveillance photos were taken at a 7-Eleven located at 38th and Irving. One photo released a year after the murder shows a man at the counter. He was a pedestrian who may have lived nearby.

In the newly-released picture, another man is seen getting into his black Nissan Frontier extended cab pickup truck — either a late 1990s or early 2000s model.

“We’re looking at ways to advance an investigation, so going back through evidence … so we’re going to put this out and see if there’s a bite,” Jackson said.

“Until we talk to them we won’t know. It’s all parts of a puzzle. Obviously we’re doing an investigation; this person may have this piece, somebody may have that piece. You put the two together and you have an answer,” Jackson said.

CrimeStoppers is offering up to a $125,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
