In a video released by police Friday from the night Ali was killed, the suspects can be seen walking toward a car. Footage is from what looks to be inside a vehicle, displaying the dash of a car and the scene out the front window.

The first suspect is described as 5’11” to 6’1″ in height with an average build, wearing silver-framed glasses, a light coloured jacket with the hood up over a baseball cap and dark shoes with white soles.

The second suspect is roughly 5’6″ to 5’8″ in height with an obese build, waring a dark hoodie with what appears to be a white North Face logo on the front and dark pants and shoes.

Police are also asking the public to pay attention to specific details from the video, such as the second suspect’s walk.

In April, police released a photo of a person of interest. The WPS say they have spoken to the woman, but would not provide any information on her involvement in the investigation.
