Victims of Thursday and Friday homicides identified

At about 10:15 p.m. Oct. 28, police were called to the 7600 block of Brooklyn, where they found 25-year-old Estalin Enrique Campos dead from a gunshot wound in the driveway of a home there. A witness said she heard a gunshot and saw an unknown vehicle speed away from the area.

The next night, at about 7:39 p.m. Oct. 29, police were called to a home in the 11800 block of Belmont because of a dead body. They found 75-year-old Nina Whitney, a white female, dead inside the residence. Police are not releasing her cause of death but are investigating it as a homicide. A relative said she had not heard from Whitney for a while and found her dead when she entered Whitney's home. Police believe Whitney lived alone.
