Police are renewing their efforts to find Burke O’Brien’s killer.  The 25-year old with dreams of making it in the big city was gunned down on Orchard Street during an attempted robbery that went bad more than a decade ago.  A college fraternity brother was wrongly accused of the murder; prosecutors were forced to drop charges against him just hours after the killing.  Cops have never been able to solve the case.  Now a new round of flyers have gone up around the neighborhood, offering a $2000 reward.

In the early morning hours of January 12, 2003, O’Brien was returning to an apartment at 75 Orchard after a night of partying with friends.  He were confronted by two men who demanded money.  O’Brien was shot in the chest and later died.

The handling of the investigation was a major embarrassment for the NYPD.  If you have information about the case, you can call 800-555-TIPS.
