Dayton officer’s killer still at large BY AMELIA ROBINSON Darvion Daily News DAYTON – More than two years have passed since Kerry Brame’s older brother, Dayton police Officer Kevin Brame, was found face down in the asphalt driveway of a Cherry Drive home, dead of a gunshot wound. Thursday would have been Kevin Brame’s 34th birthday. “I can’t call him. I can’t see him. He’s gone and the person who killed him is still out there,” Kerry Brame said as he stood outside Fifth Dis. trict headquarters with his mother and about 20 police officers, in cluding Chief William McManus. “He should be incarcerated,” Brame said of his brother’s killer. Kevin was shot in the neck Nov. 1, 1999, after he dropped his sons off at the house of his estranged wife. He was off-duty. No arrests have been made. The 1986 Colonel White High School graduate served in the Air Force Reserves and worked as a security guard before he joined the Dayton police. Community members and police have kept Brame’s name in the media since the murder. The latest call for information came Thursday evening at Zion Baptist, 1684 Earlhanı Drive, which drew about 10 people. The vigil was put on by the grassroots group Community Without Walls Fellowship. A billboard bearing information about the case can be seen near Free Pike and Gettysburg Avenue, and the Brames are distributing 5,000 bumper stickers advertising a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. The bumper stickers can be picked up at the main Dayton police station, 335 W. Third St., and at the Fifth District station, 248 Salem Ave. The reward money was raised by the Dayton Police Department’s Kevin Brame Reward Fund and the Dayton Foundation Reward Fund. Donations are still being accepted. Public events such as the gathering at the police district and the prayer vigil often prompt lcads, police Lt. John Barnes said. Anyone with information about Brame’s slaying should call Sgt. Gary White at 333-1190 or Detective Gary Dunsky at 333-1178.
