Philadelphia Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a group of children who are seen on video murdering an elderly man with traffic cones. This is yet another shocking and brutal murder in Philadelphia as crime continues to soar to historic levels.
Philadelphia Police identified the victim as James Lambert Jr. Authorities say that a group of children, no older than 12 years old, approached the victim and struck him multiple times in the head with traffic cones. Lambert was found on the street, left to die. He was transported to Temple Hospital where he later died of blunt force trauma to the head. The medical examiner accurately ruled this a homicide. Detectives have been working the case for nearly two weeks but have been unable to identify any of the offenders. If you have any information about this case, please contact police. There is a $20,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
