Sources say he may have been with two Hamtramck women right before they were kidnapped.


Police released new surveillance video Monday of a man who sources are calling a person of interest in the deaths of 18-year-old Abreeya Brown and 22-year-old Ashley Conaway.

Brown and Conaway were kidnapped in February from a home in Hamtramck and found in a shallow grave on March 25 in Detroit.

The man police want to talk to was seen with Brown and Conaway the day the women were kidnapped.

He is believed to be driving a silver sedan.

"The individual in the photograph may be an acquaintance of the two victims and may have seem them prior to their kidnappings," an undercover Hamtramck Police detective said.

Two other men, Brandon Cain and Brian Lee, are charged with shooting at the two women in an incident prior to their kidnapping.

Cain and Lee also are under investigation for the abduction and murder of Brown and Conaway.

No on has been charged in Brown and Conaway's murders.

"He's not a suspect. We just need to identify him and sit down and talk to him, see if he has any information for us that would assist us in the investigation," the detective said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Hamtramck Police Department.
