 “We need the public’s help, your help,” Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis told reporters Tuesday. "We are continuing to look for three additional people in connection with Derrion [Albert]'s murder.” Prosecutors announced Monday that four people had been charged with first-degree murder of the student from Christian Fenger High School. Albert was an innocent bystander who got caught in the middle of a fight between two rival factions at the school.

Chicago Police are requesting that the U.S. Secret Service to try to enhance the video of the beating so that other suspects can be identified. "The culture of 'no-snitch' is unacceptable," Weis said. "A young man with a promising future lost his life to senseless violence, yet few have come forward."
