New Philadelphia D.A. requests FBI help in investigation of Marvin Harrison

After an investigation, the Philadelphia district attorney's office announced that it was not bringing charges in connection with that incident. "I'm pretty comfortable I know who fired the gun," District Attorney Lynn Abraham, who has since left the job, said at the time. But she added that she was could not go forward with just the statements of Nixon and Dixon. "With these witnesses, I don't think so," she said. Dixon's death, however, has put the 2008 case back on the front burner. In September, Philadelphia voters went to the polls and elected a new district attorney, ex-prosecutor Seth Williams. And now, a task force of elite Philadelphia homicide investigators and the FBI is taking a fresh look at the shooting. "We're looking for a motive of who would want to kill Dixon, so it's common sense to go back to that first shooting," a law enforcement source said. The source said that the FBI is helping to comb through old evidence and seek out new informants, one of whom has already been said to have supplied fresh information.
