"Snitches Get Stitches" Code Preventing Tips In Murder Case

No arrests in week old drive-by shooting that killed Memphis teen

I did this story one week after a 15 year-old Memphis girl was killed while sleeping in her bed during a drive-by shooting.  Memphis Police say they've encountered a lack of cooperation from neighbors unwilling to share possible clues.  "Snitches get stitches" is a common phrase in neighborhoods where talking to police is frowned upon.  The girl's uncle agreed to speak with me about her death and the investigation.  The family is praying for arrests to be made.  Meanwhile, Memphis's top cop said not telling police pertinent information is a crime in itself.
