GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Grand Rapids police say a grant will allow the posting of billboards drawing attention to four unsolved killings in the western Michigan city.
Police Chief Kevin Belk and others announced the program at a news conference Monday.
The billboard strategy is being launched by Silent Observer, a crime-fighting program in Kent County. Silent Observer director Chris Cameron says the killings show that "there are people out there with no regard for lives."
MLive.com reports that the Gannett Foundation gave the group $5,000 for the billboards. The billboards are going up four intersections around Grand Rapids.
