Family of Slain 77-Year-Old Man Seeks Suspects

The family of a 77-year-old man who was shot and killed during a robbery in Miami is asking for help to find his killers.

Willy Warren's family gathered at the Miami Police Department Tuesday to demand justice in his murder.

"We want whoever did this to be held responsible," Warren's niece, Harvette Smith, said.

Willie Jean Warren, his wife, did most of the talking Tuesday. She fought through her extreme grief to talk about her husband.

"He was a lovable guy, giving. All that and more," she said. “I’m torn up. My whole family is torn up."

Three days ago Willie Jean left her house for a quick trip to the grocery store. That was the last time she saw Willy alive.

“Everything was fine but within an hour it was a disaster,” she said.

Police said Warren was enjoying Saturday evening outside in his driveway, sitting in the open trunk of his car when out of nowhere he was ambushed by multiple suspects.

Police think he was the target of a robbery, possibly for the jewelry he was wearing. He was shot multiple times.

Warren’s family said in one way or another whoever did this will get what they deserve.

“I pray that God trouble your soul and that you turn yourself in," Willie Jean Warren said.

But even if they do it won’t bring him back to Willie Jean.

"I’m going to miss my husband. He didn’t deserve to go like this," she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
