An affidavit reveals new information about the murder of a young man. Investigators had very little clues to go on. How did they find and arrest their suspect, Endre Turner?

According to the affidavit, Turner had a previous record for burglaries. His M.O. was to knock on front doors. If no one was home, he'd kick the door in or go around back and break in a window.

But the affidavit also revealed how they determined him to be a suspect in the first place.

About a month after the September 29th, 2011 murder of Richard Harrison, Jasmine Coleman pawned a Play Station 3 and a controller at Sols near 72nd and Maple. Surveillance video revealed that Turner was with Coleman when she pawned the items. The serial number on the Play Station 3 matched the same one missing from Harrison’s home. Police determined through forensic evidence, that Turner stole the items. He was arrested and later charged in the death of Harrison.

Investigators believe that Turner broke into Harrison’s home randomly. He didn’t expect Harrison to be home and they say he shot Harrison.

According to the affidavit, Turner got married to Coleman the day after the murder.

After the crime a witness told police he saw a Black Ford driving from the crime scene and on November 8th, 2011 police saw that car inside this garage, it belonged to Turner.

A search revealed that Turner had been positively identified in seven burglaries, three more attempted burglaries and five auto thefts. He had also previously pawned three Play Stations, the last one pawned just three days before the murder.

A trial date hasn't been set yet.
