Seattle cops can't use red-light cameras for evidence
Washington is among the few states that bar police from using images from red-light cameras in criminal investigations
SEATTLE — Could images from red-light cameras have led Seattle police to a pair of killers?
The ubiquitous cameras are mounted a short distance from the Pioneer Square intersection where Nicole Westbrook, 21, was fatally shot in April by a gunman in a passing car. Other cameras are in the Central Area, not too far from where Justin Ferrari, 43, was killed while driving with his family about a month later.
Detectives wonder if the cameras may have captured images — a fleeing car or a gunman's clothing, for example — that could have helped investigators.
