The motive for the killing is still unknown, police added.
Surprisingly, the incident took place in broad daylight in the morning when the park was full of people. Police Cmdr. Eric S. Sonstegard said there was no evidence to indicate the killing was a hate crime. Police officers were on Nov 14 speaking to neighbors and parkgoers in an effort to find out what happened.
