DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Douglas Police are hoping some new evidence could help them solve a five-year old murder case.

Detective Robert Sprinkle says the new evidence in the murder of Sandra Robinson is being tested at the GBI Crime Lab.

Robinson was found murdered on St. Patrick's Day 2010 inside the Cellular Superstore where she worked.

Her family believes someone had to see something that will help police catch her killer. "During this time of the year all of us wind up going into depression state. Her kids they just cry," said Mother Autherine Robinson.

"We continue working with the GBI and the state crime lab. We are waiting on some results now from the crime lab. It is still a very active case, " said her Detective Sprinkle.

Sandra Robinson's older son became a 911 operator because of his mother's murder. Anyone with any information in this case is asked to call Douglas Police and ask to speak to Sergeant Robert Sprinkle.
