Police Have New "Person of Interest" in Deadly Pregnant Woman Shooting
DAYTON-- Dayton Police identified "a person of interest" in the shooting death of pregnant mom Da’Lyne Foster, who was shot and killed last week.
Marty Powers, 20, is locked up in the Montgomery County Jail. Powers is being held on drug charges, but police believe he may be the shooter that left pregnant mom Da'Lyne Foster dead.
On Tuesday, police had a different suspect, but ballistics results cleared that man.
Tuesday night, an anonymous witness called in and led police to Powers.
"When they saw the news yesterday, saying that was not the person, they felt it was necessary to call because they wanted to bring justice to the mother of the child," Dayton Police Sgt. Richard Blommel said.
Police are waiting on ballistics tests to see if the gun belonging to Powers, was the one used in the shooting.
Witnesses told police Powers was firing his weapon in the air, off a porch on Stewart Street.
"I think it was like, well, everybody is shooting off guns, so I will too. These people don't understand how gravity works I guess. " Sgt. Blommel said.
Police believe one of those random bullets killed Da'Lyne, who was just walking around the neighborhood, trying to induce labor.
"I hope they got the right guy." David Foster said.
David Foster is Da' Lyne's father and the grandfather of her baby, Christopher. The newborn is still in the NIC U, but is improving.
Foster is thankful for the Dayton Police Department working so hard on the case, and he's especially thankful to the Desoto Bass community for stepping up and giving police information.
"What that shows is love. Love is action. And by the people of the community getting involved, it really shows that they loved my daughter deeply." Foster said.
Foster knows it may take some time, but he feels confident the truth will come out.
"I've got the patience of Job, and the faith of Moses. I know this will be done properly."
