NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WWLP) – The state police featured a playing card on social media with the unsolved case of a New Bedford victim.
On October 31, 2004, at approximately 8:25 p.m., Cecil Lopes was shot on Chancery Street near the United Front Housing Project in New Bedford. Witnesses say that shots were fired from a vehicle.
If you have any information that could be crucial to solving this case, you are asked to call 1-855-MA-SOLVE.
The Massachusetts State Police Department the Massachusetts Department of Correction and the District Attorney’s Offices collaborated to create playing cards that feature homicide and missing persons on them.
The cards are funded by the Department of Correction and are made available to state prison inmates. With this, they hope that they will be able to find out additional information about the crimes on the cards.
