The unsolved Phoenix homicide cases of 2015

Posted at 10:12 PM, Dec 29, 2015

Unsolved murder cases will be heavy on the minds of dozens of Arizona families as we head into the new year.

Silent Witness released 28 fliers of open homicide cases that occurred throughout 2015 around the Valley. It's only a fraction of the open cases detectives are trying to solve. 

“It’s important that the victims' families know that we will never stop investigating their case no matter how old it is,” said Sgt. Jamie Rothschild of Silent Witness. 

Christmas marked 90 days since 78-year-old Jess Sixkiller was gunned down in a brutal home invasion in Phoenix. He was an accomplished Native American advocate and Cherokee leader.

“We miss him so much that it's nearly impossible to breathe,” said his daughter Janell Sixkiller. “Somebody knows, somebody has answers. When are we going to have a stop to the killing?”

Meanwhile, Scottsdale Police still have not made an arrest for the murder of 31-year-old Allison Feldman, who was found bludgeoned to death in her home in February. 

Miguel Briseno died trying to help a woman fend off a purse thief in September.

Roman Fernandez Sr. died in a knife fight outside the Roadrunner saloon in July, leaving behind his wife and family.

Kandis Capri, a transgender woman, was gunned down near 43rd Avenue and Thomas. Besides some surveillance video of a person of interest, there’s little to go on.

And those are just a few victims in a long list.

Silent Witness is offering rewards for all of these cases. Some families have donated several thousands of dollars hoping it will lead to answers.
