John has been missing for 5 yrs from Dickerson, Maryland. Police believe he was a victim of a homicide. There is a suspect, but there is not enough evidence to make an arrest since John’s body has not been found. Detectives say someone knows something, but no one has come forward. They have now given John’s case to Cold Case detectives to see if they can come up with answers.
My heart is breaking and it gets worse with every year he’s missing. Pleaase pray I get some answers soon. Thank you.
