CBS Miami reports that residents in a northeast Miami-Dade neighborhood remain on edge almost a week after Rabbi Yosef Raksin z”l was shot and killed in broad daylight as those responsible have yet to be caught.
A source told CBS Miami that police are looking for a Toyota Tundra that was in the area at the time of the shooting because the driver may have seen something and have valuable information.
Residents, like Chana Goodman’s, daily lives have been anything but normal since Rabbi Raksin was killed in what police believe was a botched robbery.
“Um I don’t feel 100 percent safe. I have a big dog-it’s a deterrent, but my daughter usually would walk alone, but she is not walking along. My son is not walking along. It’s hard,” said Goodman. “It’s hard but as much as possible we give them rides and walk with them. We do the best we can.”
Miami-Dade Police have heightened their presence in the area, stepping up their patrolling of the neighborhood. Some community volunteers have also joined in the search for the killer, or killers, by passing out fliers.
Authorities are working on looking for homes with security cameras that could have captured video that may provide critical clues.
A source close to the police investigation told CBS4 that detectives are already reviewing videos that show at least one man who was described by a witness as being one of Rabbi Raksin’s attackers – a bit of encouraging news for residents still holding their breath for an arrest.
“Yes I am very encouraged by the way the detectives were speaking that they are being methodical and are going to catch them,” a resident said.
