Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Twin brothers shot, 1 fatally, just days apart
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Twin brothers were shot just days apart in Milwaukee, and now one of them is dead. Thursday, May 6, their mother is speaking out to get justice.
"I would like for whoever did this to be found. I want justice," said Tangela Wyatt, victim's mother. "He was a twin so I am looking at one but not the other. Its been very hard. Its been 24 years and for one to be taken away. All you've got is memories."
Tangela Wyatt says her 24-year-old twin sons were at Harriet Tubman Park, former known as Wahl Park, on April 14. The brothers' girlfriends got into a fight and someone started shooting. One of the twins was shot in the leg.
Then, just two days later, Milwaukee police say the other twin, Melchizedek Woods was found dead in his duplex on 48th and Meinecke. This, after no one had heard from him for two days since the fight in the park happened.
"Its really unusual for a young person who was only 24 for no one to have any contact in any way for that long of a time," said Det. Rosemarie Galindo, Milwaukee Police Department.
