Crazy how no one has responded to your comment so far. This hits really close to home. I believe it was a drug deal gone bad. I hope the police can get to the bottom of this. They will eventually. It is hard to understand why no one heard anything or seen anything. Maybe some people are afraid to talk. It is said that he was only wearing his underwear. The crime could of been a a different location like as if someone may have been in bed and was taken to another location. I am sure that the police have thought of all possibilities that may have taken place. When the body is identified, I feel for the parents. No matter what, you always love your child. I am surprised that no one has reported someone missing. Even if it is a friend, girlfriend or a relative. This is a crazy situation.

something fishy about this. Was there any sign of B&E,can't they use fingerprints or dental records? At the very least they could pass pictures of the tattoo's around the ink community and see if they are recognized.

I heard that they have identified the body, and if it is who I heard it was, I used to babysit him. I have been trying to find out for sure, but I can't find anything

From what I've been able to gather from those who either reside in or frequent that particular vicinity, the victim was indeed identified as Sean (Shawn?) Murphy, but this is NOT official --- there has been nothing publicly released, so just regard what I've written as hearsay and conjecture which I realize are the two least reliable sources of information, but I wanted to keep you up-to-date on what I've learned

I'm also a local, born & raised, & everyone knows evryone in this town. And news travels fast here. I have also heard it was S. Murphy, but as the above comment says that's just hearsay. I haven't been able to find any new news since monday, which wasn't much info. But i was wondering if any locals had heard ne thing in the way of suspects hearsay or not ? I went 2 school with the alleged victim and probably also will know the suspects. I hope they release some new info. soon cuz the rumors r flying & i'd like 2 know if who i heard might of did it is true.

there is more than one person involed in this I think. And the one who pulled the trigger,already gets away with alot,I don't think it actually happened at the tattoo place, I think it happened elsewhere and was put there,drug deal or not, theres no reason this young kid had to die like that. They questioned the person but didn't arrest him?

To the question on who was involoved...This isn't a fact, yet, but have heard it was Kevin Campbell,Mike Diehl(Deal?), and Travis Zaborowski. Not a actual fact ,but feel pretty stronge about it.Hope this helps you.

the owner of the tattoo parlor was said to be gone for over a week before the owner of the building was showing it. that's why it was being shown. the guy has been in considerable trouble in pittsburgh... rumor has it

The owner wasn't the owner he was intending on buying it. And Homey I don't need a lawyer thks. I know someone that had to go down to try to identify the body, but couldn't because the pictures didn't show the tattoo's to well because of how long it was from the time of death. And they know who did it but still didn't arrest him so I have no idea what they are waiting for.

Also he is the same person who recently attacked a elderly woman after she won money at the bingo hall...but of course he didn't get arrested for that either

This is pretty sad. It's sad that people I grew up with and caused trouble with just never grew out of the drug scene. I haven't talked to Shawn in a few years and the last time I saw him it wasn't looking good.

If the culprit isn't arrested and convicted this town is going to get a lot worse as far as murders go. I saw it before during the crack epidemic in the late eighties.
