Message from Chief Beck Regarding Stow Case NR11291

June 24, 2011

In response to the idea that Giovanni Ramirez "Could be cleared of all charges" Chief Beck states that “My comments today are in no way indicative of any changes in the status of the Brian Stow case.  The Department will continue to pursue leads that may convict a suspect just as vigorously as we pursue those that may exonerate a suspect.  I still believe that the arrest of Giovanni Ramirez was appropriate and he is still the primary suspect in this case."
