It was two years ago today that Adolfo Ignacio Celedón Bravo, known to his friends as Fito, was gunned down while walking with his fiancée, Amber Nelson, near Ashby BART station, and the police are no further forward in finding his killer and solving the case.
One year after Fito Celedón's brutal murder in Berkeley, his family hopes for new information that could lead to an arrest.
The reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of the men who killed Adolfo Ignacio Celedón has increased to $20,000, thanks to a new donation made by the Chilean government.
Six months ago, on Sept. 12, 2010, 35-year-old Adolfo Ignacio Celedón Bravo and his fiancée, Amber Nelson, were walking home from a party when they were ambushed and robbed near Ashby BART. Two assailants shot and killed Celedón.
Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan said he is “very hopeful” about solving the homicide case of Adolfo Ignacio Celedón, 35, who was killed on Adeline Street near Emerson on Sunday, Sept. 12, while walking home from a party with his fiancée, Amber Nelson.
The 35-year-old man who was shot and killed Sunday night while walking home from a party was a Chilean native who planned to marry his American fiancée next year.
