Two active homicide investigations open in Bay County
In less than a month, two fatal shootings have taken place in Bay County.
The Bay County Sheriff's Office has an open homicide investigation into the homicide of Edward Ross, and the Springfield Police Department is investigating the homicide of Tania Baker.
Authorities are asking for the public's help to solve these two cases. You can call either the BCSO or Springfield PD with tips. If you'd like to stay anonymous, you can call Crime Stoppers at 785-TIPS.
"I know in my heart that someone knows about this and these crimes, and we know, very much so, that that person who has that information, can call it in. If it was someone's family member, they would want the same thing. We don't want that to happen to anyone else," said Paul Vecker with the Bay County Sheriff's Office.
Vecker also said they don't believe the two shootings are related.
