Kenneth Huckstep, 22, was shot five times in the stomach during his short walk home from band practice Nov. 15. Huckstep left the home in the 7900-block of Craig Street in Holmesburg shorty before 2 a.m., for what his mother and stepfather said should have been a short walk home.
Instead, his body was found on the 3300-block of Decatur Street — just a block from his house. His cell phone and wallet had been stolen, but his cash remained in his front pants pockets.
More than a month later, police are still searching for a suspect. They’re looking for a black male with medium build, who witnesses say was driving a purple or black Corsica. A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
