Kenneth W. Howard II was standing outside his grandmother’s apartment at 1626 Boismenue St. in East St. Louis when he was shot to death two years ago.

Howard’s murder is just one of 20 unsolved homicide cases highlighted in a report this month from the St. Louis Regional Crimestoppers. An unknown man reportedly approached Howard and started talking with him, according to CrimeStoppers. The man left, but just a few moments later, he turned around, walked back, then shot Howard to death.

CrimeStoppers and authorities are seeking more information on Howard’s murder and others that occurred in the metro-east.
