In the video, three young men can be scene walking across the apartment complex's parking lot. All three are outfitted in hoodies and jeans.
Burnough's murder is the 46th in Dallas so far in 2017. Despite DPD's ongoing staffing crisis, that number reflects a more than 13 percent drop in the number of murders over the same time period in 2016, when 53 murders took place before April 28.
Anyone with any information about the murder or any of the three people in the video is asked to call DPD homicide Detective Brent Maudlin at 214-671-3676 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
