Day 11: Police suggest stopping afternoon news conferences

CREATED May 1, 2012

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - During the 2:00 p.m. briefing, Tucson Police Lt. Fabian Pacheco said police are considering whether or not to continue the daily media briefings. They would be taking the recommendations from those who were at the briefing and determine whether to continue the briefings or release information through press releases.

Police are not seeing the release of the incorrect video as a set-back in the investigation.  They have seized the server from the surveillance company.  By doing so, police can look at all video and release video for any individuals they would like to question.

Tucson Police are asking anyone with video from Freedom Park where Isabel Celis played little league to review their home video and share it with authorities.  Any video acquired could help in the investigation.  Police are working with the little league coach to go through the roster of parents.  As of Tuesday, they have not received any video.

Investigators have received over 400+ leads in this case.

Lt. Pacheco met with the Celis family to discuss the requests from the media for interviews. He said that police are remaining in "constant contact" with the family.  He also said that he urged them to speak with the media because this would help keep the case of Isabel Celis in the forefront of the community.

Any mobile phone user can provide information anonymously via iPhone or Android Apps through TipSoft. People can send a text message to "CRIMES" (274637) beginning with the keyword "TucsonPD" from a mobile phone. For this specific investigation, police are using the specific full keyword "TUCSON PD 5265."
