The family of a man shot to death at a West Phoenix bus stop hopes his killer can be found. That’s the appeal Jeff Twiss’ sister and brother-in-law are made Wednesday at Phoenix Police headquarters. They’re appealing to the public
to take note if they were in the area of 51st Avenue and Obsorn between Thanksgiving night and early Friday morning, the time frame police believe Twiss (pictured) was shot at the bus stop. He later died at the hospital.
Claudia Roels says her brother
suffered from epilepsy caused a head injury when he was 7 years old.
Despite his disability, he always managed to hold down a job but his
illness kept him from driving so he rode the bus. She says was more like
a son than a sibling since she married when he was only one year old.
The last time she heard from her 50 year old kid brother was on the phone Tuesday of last week. The Roels went to their son’s home in Tucson for Thanksgiving and Twiss stayed in Phoenix, claiming he had plans with a friend.
Police don’t have a suspect or a motive for the deadly shooting, and are combing through video surveillance of the area surrounding 51st Avenue and Osborn in hopes of finding clues. If you were in the vicinity between Thanksgiving night and early Friday morning and think you may have seen or heard something, you’re asked to call 480-WITNESS or Phoenix Police.
