Family of unsolved murder victim releases balloons on his birthday

On Sunday, the family of Isaac Orosco, a young man who was shot and killed last July, released balloons on what would’ve been his 22nd birthday. His murder remains unsolved.

Janie Esparza says she misses her son greatly.

“He was my only son, my only child, and he deserves justice,” she said.

His mother said that Isaac had a promising life that was taken far too soon.

“He was very ambitious. He had a lot of plans in his future. He loved his family dearly,” she recalled.

On July 29, 2016, police say that Isaac, a high school football player who was planning to join the Marine Corps, was gunned down outside of his apartment complex.

“Whoever did this, it’s not right for them to be out there, knowing they took an innocent life from me, from all of

Remembering the victim of Petaluma’s sad unsolved murder

Her name was Georgia Lee Moses.

But no one knew that yet.

When her body was found in a grove of trees in South Petaluma, on August 22, 1997, almost no one even knew she’d been missing. The troubled 12-year-old African-American Santa Rosa girl had disappeared from her Santa Rosa home on August 13, but no mention of her absence appeared in local papers until after the body had been tentatively identified. By the time we all learned her name, she was already long dead, her (presumed) kidnapping and subsequent murder a crime that remains unsolved to this day.

Twenty years later, many questions remain. Would Georgia Moses still be alive had news of her disappearance been widely disseminated? Was law enforcement slow to act because the victim was black, a middle school dropout, living with

Sister of cold case murder victim: ‘I’ve kept quiet for 11 years, it’s time for justice’ – WECT

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) –

July 30, 2017 marked 11 years since 34-year-old Allison Jackson-Foy went missing. Her sister, Lisa Valentino, says enough is enough and is demanding answers to this unsolved homicide. 

“11 years later it is really hard to think about how she met her end, I read the autopsy reports over and over again in disbelief on how could someone have so much hatred for someone,” said Valentino.

Allison was last seen July 30, 2006 at a bar on Carolina Beach Road. Her remains were discovered in a wooded area about three miles away in 2008.

Since then, no one has been charged with her murder.

Sunday, Valentino sat in silence and dropped off flowers near the ditch where the remains of Foy and another woman, Angela Rothen, were found. 

“I came to Wilmington this weekend because I feel like this is my last shot,” said Valentino. “I feel

Unsolved Minneapolis murder 90 years ago still haunts victim’s family

It was the kind of family dispute that played out on countless Minnesota farms: A 20-year-old daughter yearned to go to the big city despite her parents’ objections.

Strong-willed, Pearl Gilma Osten persuaded her folks to let her move 200 miles southeast from Otter Tail County so she could study music in Minneapolis. Her teachers said she was a brilliant and devoted student.

But within two weeks of her arrival in 1927, her grisly strangulation set her story apart. Nearly 90 years later, the case still haunts her descendants.

“I find the unsolved part of it maddening, but it’s also a good reminder that so many things don’t wrap up neatly tied with a bow,” said Sara Sha, who lives in Moorhead — about 40 miles northwest of her slain great-aunt’s childhood farm in Norwegian Grove near Pelican Rapids.

With a jumbled pile of photocopied newspaper clippings left when

Cold case: Family of BikeFest 2014 murder victim hopes for justice

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – It was an annual event that will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. BikeFest 2014 saw five shootings in a 48-hour period. 

Among those incidents was a triple-murder that sent the city of Myrtle Beach into a tailspin.

It’s believed more than 1,000 people watched as shots rang out at The Bermuda Sands Motel on Ocean Boulevard, yet no one has come forward.  Three young adults, all from the Summerville area, were murdered. Sandy Geddis Barnwell was one of them. Her family believes for Sandy, this was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Regardless, their world has been turned upside down and Sandy’s killer remains on the loose.

“Our kids ought to be able to go to the beach and come home to us,” said Sandy’s aunt, Melody Geddis McFadden. “There is no excuse for senseless gun violence that should prevent them from coming home.”

Sandy’s

Unsolved murder continues haunting victim’s family

The family of a man shot and killed at his Marietta apartment complex last week has increased the reward in hopes it will lead to the arrest of his assailants.

The reward was boosted from $5,000 to $12,000, including $2,000 in Crime Stoppers funds.

“He was not just like a brother; he was like a son. I will not stop, I will not rest until we find out the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth,” said Pastor Eusebio Phelps.

Phelps is the older brother of Roland Martin III.
