Two men described as "persons of interest" are sought by Kenosha police, for the murder of 18 year-old Robby Wilde during a robbery at Shirl's Drive-In Sunday evening, a crime the city's police chief calls "an assualt on the community."
At an emotional news conference, Tammy Wilde said her son was senselessly taken from her family. "I'm asking anybody with an ounce of integrity . . . and compassion to report for the whereabouts of these persons they're looking at," Wilde said. "It is apparent that they have no respect for life."
The men have been identified as 23 year-old Daniel Gonzalez, a Hispanic male with distinct tattoos on his hands and forearms. The other is 28 year-old Julian Jerome Miller, a black male with an extensive criminal record who police say should be considered extremely dangerous. Both men are gang members and are currently being sought on warrants charging them with probation or parole violations. Kenosha Chief of Police John Morrissey said the pair were most recently seen at a restaurant in Ashwabanon, early Wednesday morning. They have also been seen in the Milwaukee area.
Morrissey said Wilde's murder was a needless crime. "A young man lost his life for nothing," said Morrisey. "Please help us bring these guys in. This was an assault on this community. This is more than just killing Robbie Wilde, it's an emotional thing for everybody in the community." Morrissey said his own daughter had been at Shirl's just a couple of nights before Wilde's slaying. "This is just a couple of pieces of garbage that put fear in this community, that need to be taken care of."
"We're going to need help catching these guys," said Robby Wilde's father Mark. "Just be careful, we don't want anybody else killed."
