Police are turning to the public for help in solving the shooting death of a University at Albany student Oct. 20 on South Lake Avenue.
Police are looking to talk to two bicyclists seen in the area near Washington Park where Richard Bailey, 22, was fatally shot about 11:30 p.m. Bailey, who was going to graduate in December, died the following day.
Police released two black and white surveillance photos taken of one of the bicyclists by cameras on Ontario Street about 11:30 p.m. It could provide a break in the case, which remains unsolved, said Det. James Miller, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.
Bailey's parents made an appeal to the public today for any information that may help lead to an arrest in their son's death. Jim and Lisa Bailey gave a heartfelt plea for anyone who knows anything about the murder to come forward to police.
"I want to take this opportunity on behalf of my wife and my entire family to ask anyone who might have any information, even the slightest bit of information on who killed our son, please come forward to the Albany Police Department with that information," said Jim Bailey. "It is our extreme hope the person (s) responsible will be identified and held accountable so my family can move forward."
The Baileys met with investigators before speaking with the media at the city's Public Safety building.
Last week, police said they wanted to speak to the driver of a white Volvo or Saab that was seen on South Lake Avenue on the night of the shooting.
