DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - State officials are asking for help in solving the cold-case murder of a Dayton police officer.
    
Thirty-one-year-old Officer Kevin Brame was shot in the back with a shotgun outside his estranged wife's home on Nov. 1, 1999. He was off duty and was on his way back to his car after dropping off his children.
    
The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/14u3bBs ) reports that his parents have kept the case in the public eye by holding vigils every year on the anniversary of his death.
    
On Thursday, Attorney General Mike DeWine asked for help from the public, saying Brame's slaying is being spotlighted by his office this month.
    
The case has been through several detectives during the past 13 years, but Dayton police have never publicly identified any suspects.
