It's crucial follow this case up and support the entire process until justice is done. This murder was cruel and monstrous!

Jennifer, I totally agree with you that this murder was cruel and monstrous. What is even worse is that the person who took Mr. Alvarado's life is still out there and no one is even searching for them. Any rational person who is aware of the details of the case against Mr. Hedvall would see that it is sloppy and highly circumstancial, while there was substantial evidence that pointed toward other suspects. Were you aware that a close friend of Mr. Perez tried to strangle him just 10 days before he was found murdered, and that police were called to that crime scene. Why did the police never consider this individual as a suspect? Mr. Hedvall voluntarily and fully cooperated with the Monroe County Police Department, and instead of thoroughly investigating all leads and evidence they pinned it on the first person they found. The two murder weapons were never tested for DNA, and the victim had at least five other people's DNA on him and at the crime scene while Mr. Hedvall's was not found there at all. This case has been a disgrace to our justice system.
