FBI Honors Cleveland’s Deputy Police Chief for Helping Crack Murder Cases

Cleveland Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba refused to give up on a cold case involving the murder of a 14-year-old girl.

The chief even visited victim’s mother, Yvonne Pointer, assuring her that authorities weren’t throwing in the towel, Cleveland.com reports.

Sure enough, the case broke earlier this year after re-testing old DNA evidence.

“Not only is there a man behind the badge, but he is a man behind the badge with a heart,” Pointer said in nominating Tomba for the Unsung Hero award issued by the FBI Citizens’ Academy Foundation of Cleveland.

Tomba was nominated for also helping solve another murder.
