Brockton: Investigators release sketch of murder suspect

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office is releasing new information and a sketch of a murder suspect. The man is wanted in the death of Lee Harmon, a 74 year old Pentecostal minister.

Harmon was beaten to death with a hammer on Clinton Street in Brockton in the evening hours of August 20th. You can take a look at the sketch below.

Previously, investigators had said they believe the man is 16 to 29 years old, a light skinned Hispanic or Cape Verdean man, five foot ten to six feet tall with a thin or athletic build and black hair in a ponytail.

He was reportedly wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, possibly a white t-shirt underneath, with light colored, long shorts and black sneakers. A black Red Sox cap with a red brim was recovered at the scene and investigators say the suspect may have been wearing it.

Anyone with more information is asked to call State police detectives at 508-923-4205.
