Malachi ‘Chuck’ Wilson, Nov. 5, 1984

A relative walked over to Malachi Wilson’s house on U.S. 460 just outside Lynchburg in Campbell County on that November evening.

She found the 68-year-old sitting unnaturally upright on his couch, dead from a gunshot wound over his left eye.

Wilson lived alone.

Investigators believe he was shot sometime during the day. His body was discovered just after 6 p.m.

The investigation led to a suspect, but deputies did not find enough evidence to make an arrest.
