    New evidence may help Philadelphia police get closer to finding Sabina O’Donnell’s murderer.

    Yesterday, Homicide Police Captain James Clark released videos captured on security cameras that show the person believed to have murdered O’Donnell in Northern Liberties on June 2nd.

    One of the videos shows the moment O’Donnell started being followed at Fourth and Girard at 2:48 AM.

    “With the timeline the homicide detectives have put together through video, through talking to individuals,” says Clark, “when you see her ride by on the bike and you see this individual turn around and go after her, that is the final minutes before this crime takes place.”

    Clark says O’Donnell’s neighbors assisted in finding the videos that show O’Donnell’s last minutes.

    The person of interest is a medium-built black man who is seen on the videos riding a bike along Girard Avenue wearing the same white t-shirt that was found at the crime scene.

    O’Donnell was a twenty-year old waitress who aspired to having a career in the arts. A memorial took place yesterday at Liberty Lands Park to honor her life.
