Over the last several months, I’ve been reviewing thousands of pages of documents related to the unsolved murder of Lisa Pruett, the subject of my next book. One name that has appeared in police reports is David Branagan.
Branagan was a couple years older than Lisa Pruett and her classmates. He attended Shaker Heights High but never completed his degree. He lived on Sedgewick, the road behind the crime scene. He told police he walked by the scene about 20 minutes after the murder (and accurately relayed what police were doing at the time), though the police did not see him.
I’ve since spoken to former girlfriends of Branagan (who knew him from 1990 until his death in 2017). Two of them have gone on record saying Branagan used to break into the homes of people on Sedgewick and Lee and steal jewelry and other items. He told the mother of his child that he was breaking into homes the night Lisa was killed.
At this time I’m interested in any additional information on Branagan. If you knew him, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
