    After nine years, a cold case has been solved thanks to a deck of playing cards that highlights unsolved homicides and disappearances. In early January of 2006, Derrick Comrie was leaving from a basketball game at a local high school. While in the car, Hector Torres shot Comrie in the face with a shotgun. The two had been in a dispute previously and Torres had been planning this revenge killing. Torres admitted his role in the killing while in prison. He is taking a plea deal.

    Another man was charged with Comrie's murder in 2006 but was later acquitted:

    It is so gratifying to see justice served for people in all levels of society. Not just the rich, or this group or that group. RIP Derrick. Prayers for all involved family members and friends.
