COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM/WXTX) - Columbus Police Department need your help in finding the most wanted people in Columbus. News Leader 9's Semone Doughton brings more details on the 'Takedown 2.'
William Campbell cold case
It's a murder case that still has police searching for a killer.
Nearly eight years ago, the body of 71-year-old William Clyde Campbell was found shot to death inside his truck at the Fat Boys Farmers Market on Veterans Parkway.
It's a cold case police will never stop investigating.
Police found Campbell slumped over in the seat of a truck with a gunshot wound. Campbell died at the scene.
"He didn't deserve this, no way, he didn't deserves to go the way he went," said D. Williams, Campbell's son-in-law.
Even though he doesn't want his face revealed, Williams has come forward to talk about the man he grew to love as a father and the aftermath of his tragic death.
"I've seen the man go out and borrow money to help somebody and never get a dime of it back and didn't care," Williams said. "He was just that type of Christian."
Williams describes his father-in-law as a man who loved to help people.
Nicknamed "Hogman" Campbell had three children and a wife he left behind.
Williams says Campbell visited the market frequently to pick up bad produce to take to his hog farm, but all that came to a tragic end on June 7, 2006.
"My wife and I still have trouble with it. There is not a day that goes by that we don't just tear up. They miss him...I miss him."
Officer Deborah Whitley with the Columbus Police Department wants this case solved and the person or persons responsible brought to justice.
"It doesn't matter how old the case is. Those cases still need to be solved. There's still a piece of the puzzle that's missing in order to solve the case."
It's those pieces police are still looking for.
When Campbell's body was discovered inside his truck his wallet and money was still with him, which police say rules out robbery.
"Something that you may not think is important maybe exactly what we need to close that case," Cpl. Whitley said.
"If anybody knows anything please come forward, call the detectives here at the police department, because if it happens to your family, which I don't want to happen to nobody else family," Williams said. "I don't want to see nobody else go through what we've been going through."
Even though this crime happened several years ago police are still actively searching for the person or persons responsible.
If you remember anything about this case that can help police make an arrest you are asked to call (706) 653-3400.
