Arrests made in Georgia cold case 34 years after murder | WSAV-TV – WSAV

SPALDING COUNTY, Ga. (NBC News) — Authorities in Georgia believe they have solved a murder case 34 years later.

On October 9, 1983, Timothy Coggins was found off of Manley Road in Sunnyside — his body brutally murdered and abandoned on a power line.

The case remained unsolved until March when new evidence came to light that made investigators reopen the case and led to several arrests.

The Spalding County Sheriff says 59-year-old Frankie Gebhardt and 58-year-old Bill Moore, Sr. were arrested and charged with murder.

Former Milner Police officer Lamar Bunn,  his mother Sandra Bunn and former Spalding County officer Gregory Huffman were arrested and charged with obstruction.

Sheriff Darrel Dix of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office said, “And the satisfaction will come when these two gentlemen are convicted in this murder, and they are imprisoned for the rest of their lives. That will be satisfying.”

12 years after homicide, two men head to prison in cold case

SAGINAW, MI — Jeramie Tucker will spend the next 12 to 50 years in prison for the 2005 slaying of Terrance Winters, according to court records.

Circuit Judge Andre R. Borrello handed down that sentence Wednesday, Oct. 11, bringing an end to what was once a cold-case murder on Saginaw’s West Side.

Tucker’s accomplice, 30-year-old Charles Miles, was sentenced earlier, on Sept. 25, to 16 to 25 years in prison, according to court records.

Miles and 28-year-old Tucker initially faced charges of first-degree murder and a number of other serious felonies in the case. Both men pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and, in exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop all other charges against them.

Miles additionally pleaded guilty to one count of felony firearm. As part of Tucker’s plea deal, he agreed to testify against Miles.

In the arrest warrant, police say Miles and Tucker robbed Winters at gunpoint April 26, 2005, and shot

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Seven years ago to the day, 32-year-old Stephan Wilson was found dead in his apartment on Del Monico Drive in Colorado Springs.

‘The clown shot her’: Police make arrest in bizarre cold case after nearly three decades

Just after breakfast on a warm May day in 1990, a white convertible Chrysler LeBaron pulled into Marlene Warren’s driveway in Wellington, Fla., and a clown emerged.

The clown — wearing an orange wig, with a red bulb nose and a painted-on smile — carried a bouquet of flowers and two balloons. One said: “You’re the greatest!”

The clown offered the flowers and balloons to Warren, witnesses would later recount — then pulled out a gun and shot her in the face.

As Warren crumpled to the ground, the person in the clown disguise calmly walked back to the Chrysler convertible, witnesses said — then disappeared for the next 27 years.

“This is the strangest thing I’ve seen in all my 19 years in law enforcement,” Bob Ferrell, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, told reporters at the time. “As she went to take the flowers and balloons, the clown shot her.”

Now,
