As Ricky and a friend walked down a corridor of the shopping centre they were confronted by a male. Ricky was then stabbed. Homicide detectives described the attack as brazen.
Despite a local cone of silence around the attack, police soon found a motive and prime suspect. The suspect was eventually charged, but the charges were dropped just days before the trial was due to begin.
The Homicide Cold Case team is determined to help ease Ricky’s family’s pain and catch his killer.
