‘He needs justice.’ Cold case murder of teen haunts investigators – WXIA

Gavin Williams will never see his sister again. He’ll never get to meet his nephew. Gavin wasn’t there to say goodbye when his grandmother died. She’d raised him after his mother passed away at an early age from cancer. He’ll never get to walk across the stage at Osborne High School in Marietta.

“He ws a friendly person,” said Dana Williams, Gavin’s sister. “He made friends quicker than I did. I guess you could say he didn’t know no stranger.”

Gavin’s future was stolen on a warm Saturday night on Memorial Day weekend in 2001, when someone stabbed him 47 times on a walking trail near his apartment complex.

Watch the full story from Vinnie Politan tonight, on #TheLateFeed after the game.

“(He was) very energetic, smart, inquisitive,” remembers Dana. “My son reminds me of him a lot.”

Investigators continue pursuing leads in 2004 unsolved murder


ISLE OF WIGHT, Co. – Investigators tested the DNA of a Virginia Beach man during the investigation into the unsolved murder of Carrie Singer, according to a search warrant.

Someone murdered Singer in 2004 and left her body in a farmer’s field in Isle of Wight County. Recently, investigators released a description of a suspect, using cutting edge technology based on DNA evidence.

With the sketch out in the public, investigators got a Crime Line tip about a man resembling  the sketch, the search warrant says. The man is named in the search warrant, but News 3 isn’t naming him because he hasn’t been charged in the investigation.

Investigators reflect on cracking cold case murders


SCHENECTADY – The more Keith Gavreau’s name kept coming up, the less likely it seemed to investigators that he had strangled his 17-year-old girlfriend Suzanne Nauman with a shoelace and left her body on the edge of the municipal golf course in 1995.

“The one thing that we found through the course of the interviews was that there was no consistent theme to what anybody was telling us,” said, State Police Investigator Kevin Noto, adding “everybody would have a different variation when they would recount what information they had that in some ways implicated him. “I think what had happened was just through the amount of information that had gotten released to the public, in some ways

Solution elusive in 2015 murder of advertising saleswoman

  • Police, prosecutors searching North End property for Denise Robert homicide clues

  • MANCHESTER — On the same day, at the same time and in the same North End spot, three investigators and four witnesses privately gathered Wednesday night, hoping the meeting might produce a recovered memory or new evidence in the unsolved murder of Denise Robert.

    The 62-year-old was gunned down Aug. 30, 2015, with a single gunshot while taking her customary walk through this typically very safe Manchester neighborhood.

    Investigators say crime scene reconstruction or enactments aren’t just the stuff of reality television.

    They are commonly

    Investigators comment on unsolved murder in east Macon

    It’s been four months since 63-year-old Vivian Puente Napoles was found dead in her East Macon apartment.

    Gabrielle Dawkins spoke to Bibb County Investigators to get the latest on a case that shocked her neighborhood.

    “I was very shocked. She was a very nice lady,” says Mcintyre.

    Eddie Mcintyre remembers sitting on his porch and greeting Vivian Puente-Napoles a few times a week.

    “She’ll just come up and strike up a good conversation and we’ll laugh and talk. Far as like neighbors, it couldn’t be no better,” says 

    In May, tragedy struck. Puente-Napoles’ death stunned neighbors. Someone cut her throat inside her apartment.

    How did that happen?

    Since the killing, McIntyre has noticed a few changes in the apartment complex run by River’s Edge. 

    “After the incident, they

    COLD CASE: What investigators need to solve the murder of Gerald Dilligard

    CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) — It’s been more than a year since police say Gerald Lee Dilligard was murdered inside his own home. His killer is still unknown. The case is cold.

    Police are now relying on the community for information. So far, no one has come forward.

    Meanwhile, Dilligard’s father is posting flyers, hosting fundraisers, and trying to increase the reward money, so that he can learn something more about the night he found his son beaten to death.

    “That person needs to be punished. That person needs to be punished for more than one reason,” Jerald Simmons, Dilligard’s father, told News 2 I-Team’s Libba Holland.

    A memorial now decorates the outside of his home where Dilligard lived with his father. That’s also the home where he died. It’s on Rosemont Street in Downtown Charleston.

    Not much has changed in Dilligard’s room in the past year. Simmons keeps the light on for him.

    The night Dilligard died,
