Atlanta Police are still looking for the suspects involved in the murder of a Bracelona Wine Bar employee on Nov. 19 and say they have evidence that could lead them to the killers.
“Investigators believe at least one of the killers may have suffered serious cuts from a razor wire fence after leaving the scene in a carjacked vehicle,” the Police Department said via email. “Police detectives have collected several pieces of blood evidence and clothing that may lead them to the killers. The blood evidence and clothing has been sent to the GBI for DNA testing. In the meantime, Atlanta Police continue to ask for the public’s help in identifying the killers and have worked with Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta to increase the reward to $20,000. The usual reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment is $2,000. Anyone with information can provide an anonymous tip by calling 404-577-TIPS (8477).”
Police have kept their investigation into the death of Chelsea Beller close to the vest, but have made public statements suggesting investigators are doggedly pursuing the suspects. In one recent statement, the Police Department said, “The robbery and murder of an innocent restaurant manager doing her job is a terrible crime that has shocked even the most jaded among us here at APD.”
The incident happened around 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning, Nov. 19. Police responded to a call and found a 29-year-old woman, later identified by the Atlanta Journal Constitution as Beller, with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.
“As the restaurant was closing three males entered the location and tied up the employees with electrical tape,” the Police Department said. “The victim was forced upstairs to open the safe and then shot. The suspects fled the scene. Grady EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to Grady where she was pronounced deceased.”
Police also released video of the suspects taken during the incident:
