FROM A NEWS RELEASE SENT TO THE WWAY NEWSCHANNEL 3 NEWSROOM:

WPD detectives have closed the investigation into the murder of Teshon Malik Lane, age 19, on September 30, 2010.

The investigation has been closed due to the death of the offender.

Taaron Quintel Jones, age 19, had long been identified as the suspect in Lane’s death, but investigators had insufficient evidence to charge him.

Jones was murdered on January 24, 2011.

Within hours of his death, detectives received additional information to confirm what they already knew about Jones’s role in killing Lane.

The decision to delay officially closing the earlier case was deferred out of consideration for all surviving family members.
