"America's Most Wanted" profiles West Michigan murder

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - The family of  Ryan Pollok, a West Michigan man murdered more than four years ago, is hoping another mention on "America's Most Wanted" will lead to his killers.

"They have the full national and international reach," says Doug Pollok, Ryan's father. "Unfortunately, it hasn't been successful for us yet."

Friday night, the program profiled Pollok's case for the second time since his murder in September of 2007. Pollok, 22, was leaving a party in Wyoming at the same time police believe Juan Reyes and his brother Eric Santiago were chasing an enemy gang member.  Investigators say Reyes fired wildly and killed Pollok, a man he had never met.

Investigators believe the brothers escaped to Texas, California or Mexico.  Relatives and friends may be helping them hide.

Wyoming City Manager's Blog - "Relentless Positive Action"

Wyoming City Manager's Blog - "Relentless Positive Action"

This past week, I was again reminded of the importance Gov. Snyder’s philosophy of “relentless positive action”and its significance to our daily life. 

On Monday, the Wyoming Downtown Development Authority (DDA) took a few minutes out of its meeting to recognize the significant efforts of one of our staff members, Kim Lucar, in supporting the organization since its inception in 1999.  For more than 10 years, she supported the DDA for no extra pay or accolades;  it was merely a good organization looking to improve a commercial corridor that has suffered significant change over the last few years, yet remains important to our community.   

Watch out for the "purple potty"

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - Watch out for the "purple potty!"

A Wyoming resident, Matt VanEssen, is using the "purple potty" as a fundraiser for the Relay for Life of Wyoming-Grandville on May 11-12.  The "purple potty" will be left in the front yards of area residents and the only way to get it picked up and removed will be to donate $20 to the American Cancer Society effort.  At that time, the person can choose who gets the "purple potty" next.

You can track the "purple potty's" location at https://www.zeemaps.com/purple_potty_project.

If anyone has any questions or to avoid the purple potty, contact Matt VanEssen at (616) 366-5637
