5:01 pm
we have learned the name of the 4th suspect wanted in the killing of brendan wilson, which happened right here behind woodbridge senior high school. his name is dion moses, 17 years old. normally police do not release the names of juvenile suspects. but in this case because moses is still large and the other three suspects are still in custody that they requested a judge allow this name to be released and that they have released dion moses' name in hopes of helping police find him and justice to be served. with an eyesight of the murder scene, and with the suspect at large, police check out leads for suspicious juveniles. >> he always put everyone else before himself, always smiling, always happy. >> reporter: it's where the 16- year-old was gunned down on monday afternoon and his murder was not drug-related.

5:03 pm
that is overrun by these high school kids. the folks who would cater to them with the drug deals and the same place on out here. they have urinated on their side of the house. >> reporter: a neighbor posting a sign that would say notice that we were all watching. >> just the simple security camera like they would have in parking lots and commercials and so forth and that it would need to solve, it seems to me pretty much all their problems back there. now this property here where he was killed is owned by the parks and recreation. however the director says that they have no authority to put up any lights or cameras back here because there's an easement. a spokesman for the school says it has never been discussed to put lights or cameras back here
5:04 pm

5:06 pm
somewhere in the area where the children may be. it's a remote possibility. >> we are still searching on a daily basis. >> so the torture continues for the children's father. >> we do believe that the victim rights foundation is that they are still alive. the conditions are better for new ground searches that could reveal clues or bodies. the children have not been seen since september 9 when their mother claimed she took them to the daycare center for a try out and then fled from her husband at the fast food restaurant. but as you saw that husband and his supporters, they are continuing their search with new life they have new opportunities for searching as they will continue.

5:09 pm
the trust of our community as well as the sentencing that was suppose to occur on september 2, where the defendant lunged at two prosecutors. >> one of those prosecutors were nine months pregnant at the time and had to scale a wall to get away from him. those long lines, if they are trying you crazy, check it out. today they unveiled a new program, the new payment. surae chinn tells us how it has worked. >> unveiling a new payment where we could soon be paying with our smart phones. this woman spent no less than 25 seconds fumbling for her
