Loved ones seek answers for father, daughter killed …
Loved ones are seeking answers and asking for the public's help to solve the 2001 murder of a father and his young daughter in Compton. On Aug. 8, 2001, 24-year-old Stephen Murphy and his 2-year-old daughter, Kali Murphy, were gunned down outside of a home on the 13100 block of Willowbrook Avenue.
With the gunmen still at large, loved ones have been seeking justice for over 20 years. A press conference held by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department on Friday morning announced the reopening of the case once again.
The summer Stephen and Kali were murdered was a violent one in Compton, filled with constant strife and deadly gang-related activity. Stephen and his daughter were caught in the crossfire as gunfire from passing cars struck and killed them both. They were scrambling for safety on his grandmother’s front porch before they died.
