    Is this worth contacting the police?

    Ten years ago an elderly man was murdered early one morning while he was waiting for a bus on his way to work. There were no witnesses nor could they find a motivation for the murder.
    I worked in a bookstore approximately eight blocks from where this occurred. A man used to come into the store a few times a week. I could tell that he was mentally ill and I felt kind of sorry for him. He never bought anything, he was after reference information pertaining to the various medications he was on. I worked evenings and we were hardly ever busy, so I spent a lot of time with him. He would always seek me out for help. One night when he was leaving he pointed to a John Grisham display of his newest release. Then he says "That's John Grisham's first non fiction book. I don't don't dare read that. I don't want any ideas in my head. I don't know what I'm capable of." It was either the next morning or the one after that the elderly man was beaten to death. The man who came in the store was a big guy, 6'3" probably and stocky build. I'm sure he could really do some damage. After that night I never saw him again even though I continued to work there five years longer.
    I think the odds are really low that it was him, but it keeps nagging at me.
    Antidepressants are horrible drugs for many people. One in eleven people in the US are on them at any given time, yet 79% of violence is done by those on them. He was on those and others.
    Is this really worth mentioning to the RCMP or will it just be annoying to them?

    You stand to lose nothing by giving them the information you have.

    Yes it's worth it. It could be useful information to them.
