Wilmington Police Seeking Public’s Help In 2015 Slaying

The Wilmington Police Department’s Cold Case Unit is asking for the assistance of the public in connection to the 2015 murder of William Beltran.

On October 14, 2015, police found Beltran in a parking lot in the 300 block of Monroe Street suffering from fatal gunshot wounds.

Investigators are asking anyone that has information regarding Beltran’s death to contact the Cold Case Unit office at (302) 576-3619.

The Wilmington Police Department’s Cold Case Unit is part of the department’s Criminal Investigations Division, and includes WPD cold case investigators and an agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

The Unit typically handles cases that have remained unsolved after a year, and after all investigative leads have been exhausted by the primary investigator. Members of the Cold Case Unit work tirelessly to pursue new leads in these cases and to deliver justice to the families of those who have been affected by crime.

Investigator Robert Partlow can be reached at (302) 650-3967 or Robert.Partlow@cj.state.de.us
ATF Special Agent Veronica Hnat can be reached at (302) 275-0369 or Veronica.M.Hnat@usdoj.gov
