Murder suspect Kenan Adams-Kinard
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane Police are hoping social media can give them clues to where one of the juvenile suspects was hiding after the beating death of WWII veteran Delbert "Shorty" Belton in North Spokane.

Belton was beaten to death in what police believe was a botched robbery. Police then launched a city-wide search for two teenage suspects, Demetrius Glenn and Kenan Adams-Kinard.

Police have filed a search warrant to try to figure out where Adams-Kinard was hiding for several days.

They're looking at two Facebook pages, one Adams-Kinard posted to for quite some time and another created several days after Belton's murder. It's not clear if that page was created by the teen, or someone pretending to be him.

Police want to track down the IP addresses from those posts.

They want to find out who was helping the teen hide from police, and locate evidence like the clothes the teen suspect was wearing the night of Belton's murder.
