Zebb Quinn Disappeared 17 Years Ago, And A Man Was Just Indicted For His Murder

Zebb Wayne Quinn went missing on January 2, 2000 after working a shift at Walmart in his hometown of Asheville, North Carolina. He was 18 years old and had just finished his shift in the electronics department of the store at 9 p.m. After work, he had plans with his coworker and friend Robert Jason Owens.

Robert told Zebb that he knew of a car for sale. Zebb was actively looking for a new car at the time. The two met up in the Walmart parking lot before driving separately to look at the vehicle. The two men were caught on surveillance footage at a gas station nearby at around 9:15pm, buying sodas.

Eve Nance Murder Case Profiled On Snapped

A Fond du Lac murder case was recently featured on the Oxygen Network’s program “Snapped.” The program featuring the Eve Nance case aired on the network on August 6th. It recalled the shooting death of Tim Nance in November of 2013. Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says his office was asked to participate in the interviews for the program, but they declined because the case has been appealed and post-conviction motions could still be filed. Former District Attorney Dan Kaminsky did agree to be interviewed. He says he was asked because they needed somebody to answer legal questions and to give them some context. He was interviewed last year in a make-shift studio on the top floor of the Holiday Inn Express in Fond du Lac. He says it was fun because he got to bring his daughter along. He says he sat in front of the

Former Cheerleader Who Hired Hitman To Kill Dad Speaks Out On His Murder: ‘I Was Glad He Was Gone’

In 1986, Cheryl Pierson was a 15-year-old high school cheerleader who was being sexually abused by her father. 

“The more I fought, the more violent it got, so at that point, at 15 years old, I just let him do what he wanted to do just to be done with it,” she told Inside Edition. The teenager then came up with the idea of hiring another student to kill her father.

She asked Sean Pica to do the deed on February 6, 1986. “How much money would you do it for?” she asked him. Pica asked for $1,000 but received $400. He killed the father on his driveway in Long Island anyway.

“For the first time in my life, I felt safe…I was glad he was gone,” Pierson says.

The hit wasn’t kept secret for long. Pierson’s boyfriend, Rob Cuccio, broke down and revealed the details to authorities. Pierson’s story made headlines and even

2007 Cold Case Reopened After Suspect Is Interviewed For Murder Of Girls Who Went Missing On Hike

A 10-year-old cold case has been opened after a suspect in another investigation confessed.

According to WLFI, a tip in a double homicide led authorities in Logansport, Indiana to 39-year-old Kevin Sellers. Sellers is also accused of killing his uncle, David Sellers, in the home they shared in 2007.

“We never dreamed that it would be him,” said the victim’s wife after all these years. David was found dead from a single gunshot. Although Kevin was interviewed at the time, no charges were filed.

Fast forward to August 2 of this year. Kevin was asked to come to the sheriff’s office after police received a tip about the double murders of Abigail Williams and Liberty German in February. Pictured above is a photo of the suspect in the murder of the two young girls.

That tip referred to David as “having killed his uncle some years before and had gotten away with it.” He ended
