    New clues have arisen that may help officials close a case in the death of rabbi, but they still need the public’s help.

    “They did look very sincere in telling me, ‘Listen, we are doing whatever possibly we can to bring the killer to justice,'” said Shuli Labkowski.

    Labkowski’s father, Rabbi Yosef Raksin, was shot and killed on Aug. 9, as he walked to synagogue in Northeast Miami-Dade.

    The killer remains on the loose. However, 7News has learned that Labkowski was called to the State Attorney’s Office last week to meet with prosecutors and police to receive an update in her father’s case. “Given that we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary, both the Miami-Dade Police and our prosecutors handling this case, wanted to sit down and update the family on the status on the investigation,” said attorney Ed Griffith. “The investigation is very active and is proceeding forward.”

    The 60-year-old rabbi was visiting his daughter and her family from Crown Heights, Brooklyn when he was gunned down. Labkowski said she thinks about that fateful morning everyday.

    The wait for an arrest has been torturous since receiving the news of the death of her father, who would have turned 61 years old Tuesday. “We have looked hard,” said Griffith. “We have suspects, but what we lack is that essential piece of evidence to allow us to move forward. That piece, if it falls into place and it is being worked hard now, may make all the difference in the world.”

    Labkowski said the case simply needs that one tip that will help officials put the case to a close. “They’re waiting for someone to come and give them the information, and I really hope someone does it,” she said. “If anyone, if they have a sister or a mother, someone that knows the information, they can come forward and, you know, it can happen to anyone.”

    If you have any information on Rabbi Yosef Raksin’s shooting death, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
