Police Solve 5-Year-Old Cold Case

After five years of searching for a killer, Philadelphia Police finally made an arrest in the murder of a nursing student near Temple University.

Twenty-seven-year-old Antoine Moye was arrested Wednesday night. He was already in prison for another crime.

Police say Moye shot and killed 21-year-old Hadiyah McIver as she crossed the street in 2005.

It was a bittersweet moment for McIver’s family. Her mother, Tonya Ruffin, had nothing but words of praise for the officers who finally cracked the case.

“I want to thank Det. Booker and the Philadelphia Police Department for not giving up on this case. Detective Booker, we love you,” said Ruffin.

Police sources don’t yet know why McIver was shot, but they believe it was a case of mistaken identity.
