Investigators Seek Leads In Teen’s Grisly Unsolved Murder

ALAMEDA COUNTY, CA — It has been 34 years since Kellie Jean Poppleton, 14, was found dead along Kilkare Road in Sunol. More than three decades later, on the anniversary of her death, investigators with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office are revisiting the cold case seeking leads in the teenager’s grisly death.

Poppleton attended Conrad Noll School in Fremont and was last seen alive in the area of Darwin Drive and Fremont Boulevard. On Dec. 2, 1983, Poppleton’s body was found badly beaten, strangled and sexually assaulted along the remote road in Alameda County, according to media reports. Investigators at the time suspected Poppleton’s death was possibly related to a school drug ring. The sheriff’s office said witnesses reported a black Pontiac Trans Am in the area where her body was found.

The murder of Tina Faelz was of the most infamous cold cases ever solved in Alameda County. Unsolved until

‘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
