No one likes unsolved crimes, especially the police. We believe our local authorities really care about solving such crimes, but in some cases they can’t do it without help.
We believe the Florence police have some strong leads in the murder of Andrea Susan Forbes, but want to be sure they have a strong and valid case before making an arrest or arrests. If you have any information concerning Andrea’s death, or just her movements leading up to it, please contact Florence Police at 256-768-2764 or text a tip to 274637 using keyword “FPDTIP” plus your message.
It’s now been four months since Robert DeShawn Childers was reported missing. At this point, we may, unfortunately, assume the worst. His family deserves closure. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Mr. Childers is asked to contact the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department at 256-760-5769 or 911.
There’s a Walker County man who’s been missing for a few years now. His family believes they know who killed the young man, but more information is needed to make an arrest. State and local authorities have offered an award of 6K, but still no one has come forward with information.
A few months ago, the missing man’s family attempted to secure more money for the reward. Their rationale was that, while those with information wouldn’t contact police for a 6K reward, they would for 10K or 15K. This is a sad commentary on the state of society today.
Certainly, money talks. Yes, there’s probably a small reward in the cases mentioned above; however, each and every one of us should be willing to do what we can to bring these miscreants to justice.
