SNIPER MURDERS TIP-LINE
The toll-free tip-line
set up October 10th at the FBI's Washington Field Office
receives thousands of calls per day related to the sniper-attacks
in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. We continue
to encourage the public to call 1-888-324-9800 with
relevant and timely information which may lead to the
apprehension of the perpetrator(s) of these crimes.
Callers have occasionally
experienced a busy signal because of heavy call volume
on the tip-line and we have added additional lines and
operators to correct this problem.
We ask callers, however,
to make sure that they provide substantive information
relating to the sniper attacks; but not theories, opinion
or unrelated information which needlessly tie up the
tip-line. We encourage the public to consider using
the FBI web-site,
to provide information which is not time-sensitive but
may be relevant to the sniper murders investigation.
