Andrew Gelston Graham, Mile High Murder No. 51, may have been killed by suspects in racially motivated assaults: See a gallery of possible suspects

Back in November, Andrew Gelston Graham was found dead on a lawn near his suburban home, and in the immediate aftermath of the crime, clues were scarce. Even videos taken of Graham and other passengers as they disembarked from the light rail shortly before he was attacked didn't immediately lead to a breakthrough.

Now, however, a Channel 4 investigation reveals that law enforcement sources have identified five possible suspects in the murder -- and several of them are also thought to have taken part in racially motivated attacks on whites or Hispanics that led to more than thirty arrests in November. Look below to see a gallery of mug shots from those busts, some of which may picture individuals who played a part in Graham's death.
