September 26, 2013 (KING5) – Seattle police investigating the robbery of a 33-year-old man who was found injured in Belltown on September 15 have released new video in the investigation. It shows the victim talking to two men and a woman during the evening; now police want to speak to those three people and are asking the public’s help in identifying them.
Rory Burks, 33, said he was brutally attacked from behind and then robbed after leaving a wedding reception last week at the Mayflower Hotel in downtown Seattle. But Seattle police have said they’re not entirely certain he was assaulted. Because he was intoxicated, they think it’s possible he might have been injured during a fall on the sidewalk.
Burks’ family members dispute that theory.
“I don’t know how you can fall down and hit the front of your skull and the back of your skull, I’m sorry,” said his stepfather, Ron Ripley. “There appears to be bruise marks under his cheek that look like a fist or something hit him.”
That’s why police think surveillance video from that night is important. It doesn’t show what happened to Burks, but does show him standing on the sidewalk for a few moments. He drops his jacket and then picks it up.
