Family pleads for help in unsolved murder

November 25, 2003

Coffee County- Dressed in white and wrapped in feathers Christy Dawn Myers smiled for the camera, a picture her grandmother calls a portrait of an angel.

"We weren't aware that she had any enemies. Everybody loved her. She was just a happy-go-lucky person," says Josephine Adams.

If alive today Christy would have been 25. She was stabbed to death in September 1998. Her body was found behind her car on the Broxton Fitzgerald Highway. The killer and murder weapon have never been found.

"It could be someone that comes up and talks to us every day that's what's bad. Who's to say that they don't come up and talk to us."

Adams is pleading for anyone with answers to come forward, not just for her but for her 7 year old great-granddaughter Chelsea Kaitlyn who was only two when her mother was murdered.

"As small a community as Broxton is there's somebody who knows who did this, and we've always said and put in the paper if any body had any information to please call the GBI or let somebody know."

Until then family members say they'll hold a candlelight vigil each September and continue to draw attention to the case in hopes investigators will crack the case and add closure to their lives.

Douglas GBI agents say the case is still open and they continue to follow any leads they receive. If you have any information contact the Douglas GBI at 912-389-4103.
