Crime

Aaron Hill allegedly murdered Brandon Goff during marijuana sale (12)

Last week, we told you about a homicide on the 1400 block of Moline in Aurora; see our previous coverage below. In the immediate aftermath of the crime, police shared little information about the victim and none about a potential suspect. Now, however, the Aurora police have arrested Aaron Hill, 25, for the crime.

Investigators believe Hill killed Tulsa, Oklahoma's Brandon Goff, 24, when the latter tried to buy marijuana from him -- the sort of incident sure to incite both sides of the pot legalization debate.
