Cold-case investigation yields arrest in Isle of Wight homicide

Revisiting cold-case homicides led Isle of Wight County investigators to new information and an arrest in the death of a county native, Lt. Tommy Potter said.

This week, detectives arrested Trabion Tynes, 44, of Surry County and charged him with the 2004 slaying of his father, Johnnie Tynes Sr., 56. The victim’s youngest son — Trabion Tynes was 31 at the time — was indicted for murder and is being held without bond at Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Suffolk.

Trabion Tynes was charged in the murder once before, in February 2008. The charges were dropped in May 2008 after some witnesses were reinterviewed and several others could not be found.

The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office reviewed two cold-case homicides this year — Johnnie Tynes’ death and the slaying of Carrie Singer. Both deaths took place in 2004 and had remained unsolved, Potter said.
