Trying to locate a homicide suspect can sometimes turn a hot case into a cold one. In some of these cases, detectives have enough evidence to get an arrest warrant on charges related to the killing, but the suspect disappeared.
Cincinnati police are looking for three men in four of the city's 61 slayings this year:
Derrick Benning, also known as Donte Rogers, 21. He is wanted in connection with the shooting of Raymone Lyons in the West End on Aug. 6.
Marvin French, also known as Darnell McKinney, 30. He is wanted on murder charges in the shooting deaths of Alberto Hamilton and Jermico Clifford, who were found dead in a Beekman Street garage Oct. 16.
William "Buck Buck'' Covington, 19, wanted in the shooting of Raymond Minifield on Nov. 1. Minifield was shot in the parking lot of New Mother's Laundry, Bond Hill.
"These people have just eluded us,'' said Lt. Kim Frey, homicide unit commander. "There's no sense in keeping that a secret.''
Police ask anyone with information about the men's whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at 352-3040. The anonymous tip line gives rewards of up to $1,000.
