T-Shirt Solves Treme Murder Case


Memorial T-shirts help families grieve and remember their loved ones when tragedy strikes. But in one recent homicide case, a shirt depicting one man lost to violence also helped police track down a suspect in another case. After recognizing his cousin in a T-shirt caught on video, police arrested 26-year-old Dale Lambert Monday for a Treme murder dating back to March.

 

Lambert was arrested about 9 a.m. Monday in the Columbia Parc neighborhood of the 7th Ward for allegedly killing Bernard Santiago, 30, on March 22 in the 2100 block of Saint Ann St. A second man was also injured after being shot in the ankle during the incident, police said.

 

Police said homicide detective Michael McCleery broke the case after getting video of the incident. Footage shows that the gunman in the incident is wearing a custom-made T-shirt that says "R.I.P," and depicted a man who was killed in a separate murder. McCleery was able to identify the person being remembered on the shirt as Lambert's cousin, who was killed several months earlier, police said. McCleery obtained an arrest warrant after conducting further interviews.

 

Lambert was booked on Second Degree Murder and Aggravated Assault charges. Police said Lambert has previously been arrested on a bevy of charges including Aggravated Assault,  Possession of Valium,  and a variety of other drug and gun chrages.
