2011 M-80 Firecracker Still Mystery

Police still haven't caught the person who fired a shot that killed Michelle Packard at last year's fireworks show at Riverfront Park in Lansing.

They also haven't found the person who threw an M-80 firecracker into the crowd at the 2011 fireworks.

It landed next to a woman who immediately rolled on top of her seven-year-old son to protect him.

She was treated for second and third-degree burns.

Police had 45 officers in the park that night -- less than half as many as will be there Thursday.
