Tips flood in after TV segment on homicide

  • Follow Latest News

North Augusta Public Safety Sgt. Tim Thornton returned home from Washington,  on  Sunday after a busy evening monitoring tips that came in after America’s Most Wanted ran a segment on an unsolved 2005 homicide.

Angeline Hartmann,  the  correspondent on the story, said the call center “was very, very busy and Sgt. Thornton received many tips on the case, from all over the country.”

The show’s segment featured a re-enactment of a gunman’s rampage that started at the Burger King drive-through and continued at the nearby Huddle House, where he wounded the Rev. Earl Carter and killed Bill Powell.

Tips can be e-mailed to the show via amw.com, or viewers can call  (800) CRIME-TV.

I certainly hope one of these tips will lead them to the killer. This was so sad, I remember when it happened and it was just unbelievable. It would be good for justice to be served.

I pray for justice to be served in this case to give closure to the victims and survivors. I still feel someone knows something and maybe does not think it is relevant to the case.

They did not use the Huddle

They did not use the Huddle House as to avoid negative publicity for the restaurant as well as not providing free advertising.....My prayers for the families of those involved in this tragic case. I just can't believe it's been that long....Seems like maybe two years ago at most.
