Utica Police Renew Calls for Info on 2020 Homicide Case That’s Gone Cold
Utica Police are renewing calls for information in a 2020 murder investigation that claimed the life of a 35-year-old man. There is also a reward being offered in the case in hopes that someone with information will come forward.
Molik Liggins, of Utica, suffered several gunshot wounds on the night August 14, 2020. The shooting was reported on the 1600 block of Howard Avenue. Liggins would be rushed to a local hospital but was pronounced dead soon after, police have said.
With their plea for new information and leads in the case, Utica Police have also released a video snip of the man they believe is responsible for shooting Liggins. Officials had previously released still shots of this footage. That footage shows the suspected shooter walking along the side-walk. That person is only seen from on- side and does not provide a look at the alleged shooter's face (see the UPD Facebook posting) for the video.
Police hope that someone may notice something that identifies the person. And, investigators say they are confident that someone has information about the incident and are asking them to come forward.
