Victim Bryce Cheney

Tacoma Police detectives need your help to identify the suspect responsible for the murder of 19 year-old Bryce Cheney, a morning newspaper deliveryman for The News Tribune.

At approximately 4:35 a.m. on Monday June 8th, 1998, victim Bryce Cheney and his father had just finished Bryce's newspaper route and returned to their house in 300 block of E. North Lane in the eastside of the City of Tacoma. 

Cheney's father heard a prowler outside of their house and went outside to find and confront the prowler.  Bryce Cheney followed his father outside and encountered the unidentified prowler, who fatally stabbed Bryce once in the chest before the walking away.

Witnesses described the suspect as a black male, 16 to 25 years old, 5'7" tall, 150 lbs., with black curly hair.  He was seen wearing dark colored pants and a blue athletic-style jacket with silver stripes.  Investigators found a pink girl's Huffy brand bicycle in the victim's backyard and believe it may have been left there by the suspect.
