Answers Sought In Fremont Cold Case Murder

FREMONT, CA — A Fremont cold case detective now believes that an unsolved 1982 Fremont murder was a case of body dumping, with the killing likely happening elsewhere.

After submitting evidence recently for DNA testing, police said today they have reopened a 1982 cold case involving the death of a woman whose body was found in Fremont.

At about 5 a.m. on March 8, 1982, the body of Kathy Ann Miramontes, also known as Sweedie, was found on Chase Court. Miramontes’ body showed signs of extreme trauma.

About two and a half years ago, a new detective began reviewing the case and officially reopened it after talking with Miramontes’ family.

Gone cold, but not forgotten: Searching for answers in unsolved murder cases

Melvin Knox had a secret.

A dark secret he had kept tucked away for more than four decades, through stints in prison for burglary, drugs and once threatening a couple with a shotgun.

Knox’s secret made his other crimes seem almost petty.

It wasn’t until June 28, in a Tarrant County courtroom, that Knox — a kind-looking black man whose white hair and matching beard showed his 59 years — stood before a judge and for the first time publicly admitted his secret.

Almost 44 years earlier — as a 15-year-old boy — Knox had murdered his best friend, Donald Rodgers.

In July, Knox was sentenced to 40 years in prison — a sentence he is appealing. The 1973 murder case is thought to be among the oldest cold cases solved and successfully prosecuted in Tarrant County.

8 years later, parents want answers in their son’s unsolved murder

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) –

It’s been eight years since 19-year-old Ja’Ron McGill was shot and killed in the streets of Charlotte. McGill’s parents are hoping someone will have new information that will help lead to an arrest on the eight-year anniversary of their son’s murder. 

“For any parent the worst news you want to hear is your son has been murdered, ” James McGill said, who is Ja’Ron McGill’s father.  “Our faith has sustained us.”

James McGill believes somebody knows something and they should come forward with information.”Thou shalt not kill was not a suggestion but a command,” the father said. “And nobody has the right to take anybody’s life.”

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said the cold case unit is handling the case. This means a group of volunteers, who are experts in their field, have analyzed evidence and made some recommendations
