McCanns get response from city.. sort of
The parents of Annie McCann, who have been pleading with the city to reopen their daughter's case and have retained high-powered consultants to help them make their case, got a terse response from city officials last week. It was forwarded to the media on Friday but I've been too swamped to get it up until now. The response from Deputy Mayor Christopher Thomaskutty, which is below, indicates that city officials are either exasperated with dealing with the family or realize this could be headed to court at some point and want to choose their words carefully:
"Mr. and Mrs. McCann:
On behalf of everyone in the Mayor's Office, we are terribly sorry for your tragic loss. To answer your question, "no", the Baltimore Police Department will not re-open the investigation into your daughter's death.
