Officer’s case not forgotten BY AMELIA ROBINSON Dayton Daily Neu’s DAYTON – Dayton police Lt. John Barnes said divine intervention might be needed to help find police Officer Kevin Brame’s slayer. “Continue to pray that God will directour path,” Barnes said Friday night during a vigil for Brame. Hetold the 60 people who attended a vigil at Zion Baptist Church, 1684 Earlham Drive, that detectives continue to investigate leads, but tips from the public might be what it takes to solve the 2-year-old case. Brame, 31, was gunned down Nov. 1, 1999, after dropping his sons off at the house of his estranged wife on Cherry Drive. He was off-duty. No arrests have been made. The case is particularly difficult, Barnes said, because Brame, who was armed the night he was killed, was an officer. . Brame’s mother, Rosemary · Brame, wept as she spoke about her son, a six-year veteran of the Dayton Police Department. She said she sympathized with the families of those killed in the terrorist attacks in Washington, D.C., and New York. “We lived our own Sept. 11 tragedy,” she said. “Like the victims of the plane attacks, he had no warning, no chance for defensive action.” Family members hope a reward will encourage people to come forward with information. The Dayton Police Department’s Kevin Brame Reward Fund and the Dayton Foundation Reward Fund have raised $25,000. Donations still are being accepted. Anyone with information about Brame’s death should contact Sgt. Gary White at 333-1190 or Detective Gary Dunsky at 333-1178. a vign Drive, that leads, bu
