D.C. Sniper Link in Lansing?

By  | 

Lansing Police are working with other local and federal authorities to see if a local unsolved murder is linked to the beltway sniper killings.

The murder of Bernita white that occurred last June is presumed to be from a sniper bullet according to Lansing police.

The shooting was apparently a random act and police estimate it was from about 200 feet.

While there are similarities between the Beltway Sniper, Lansing police say there are also differences making the link a weak one at best.

Because the bullet went through the body of the victim and could not be recovered, they believe it was a heavier bullet than the killings in Washington, D.C.
