Name That Criminal

In a notorious murder case, Rohan Bolt is doing the time. Did someone else do the crime?

The NYPD is supposed to keep more detailed information on the guns it seizes. Tests are supposed to be conducted on each seized weapon, and the results are run through a computerized database to see whether it's linked to unsolved crimes. At one point, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms had copies of the NYPD's ballistics reports on Page's Beretta and the Davis-Epstein murders, but those records were lost when the ATF office was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.

A Freedom of Information Law request to the NYPD for the ballistics reports was made in March. Nearly six months later, an officer in the unit that responds to such requests says the NYPD lab that has the records is "all backed up." The officer could not say how the records were kept or what was the specific cause of the delay. Asked for a timetable, the officer replied, "It's going to take a while."

Unfortunately for Rohan Bolt, all he has is time.
