    Elderly people are so defenseless...just like little kids. I wonder why anyone would want to harm this man? If he was deliverying pizza he must not have been loaded with money...they evidentally didn't want his vehicle. It just never stops. I hope he is found soon and hasn't been harmed.

    Body identified in Rock Island county

    Posted: Nov 9, 2005

    A body found Saturday near Illinois 92 and interstate 280 has been positively identified as a missing Campbell's Island man.

    Rock Island county sheriff's lieutenant Gerry Bustos says the body is that of 74-year old George Lister.
    Bustos says a local dentist working with the county coroner's office was able to identify the body through dental records.

    He says foul play is suspected in the death, but an autopsy could not determine exactly what caused Lister to die. He says the body has a fractured bone in the neck and a forensic anthropolgist will be taking a look at that.

    Lister was last seen alive at his home October 15th.

    Moline, Il-A coroner's jury today ruled the deaths of George Lister and Nick Atwater as homicides, but now what the families need, are arrests in both cases.

    About a dozen of Lister's family members came to todays inquest. Lister was found in a remote, wooded area off Interstate 280 and Route 94 on November 5, after he went missing October 16.

    Rock Island County investigator Eric Holton today said the 74 year old's body was found propped up against a tree, lying on his back, and for the first time revealed that he doesn't believe Lister was actually killed there at the scene. ''The body positioning was such he was either carried or dumped up top from the service road and rolled to that position''.

    Family members of Nick Atwater attended todays inquest, too. He was shot in the head in a parking lot at an apartment complez in Milan. No one's been arrested, the investigation ongoing.

    ''The toughest part is not knowing who did it, why they did it, ''cried Betty Atwater. ''My son didn't deserve to die, if anybody knows anything, please call the police, I just can't go through this anymore''.

    Lister's daughter says it's tough not knowing who killed her father , or how he died. ''He was such a good guy, everybody liked my Dad. I had a dream about him last night, he was talking to me'', said Diana McIntire. ''We really need to know''

    Lister, a construction man by trade, was last seen by his wife at his house on Campbells Island. He received a cell phone call around 4:3 0pm for a bid inquiring about a retaining wall, and was never seen alive again.

    Both families say they have confidence that investigators in Milan and Rock Island County, will crack their unsolved cases.

    ''We have all the confidence in the world in them'', said Lister's daughter Pam Van Rycke.

    ''We're gonna get em'', said Lister's widow Dorothy. ''We're gonna get 'em''.

    The Murder of George Lister

    I remember in October 2005 when CBS4 started running stories about a missing Campbell's Island man, 74 years old, who drove a white pick up truck. As the days he was missing turned into weeks, I became familiar with the name George Lister. I was covering a benefit to raise reward money for tips on his whereabouts the same day that a body was found along Illinois 92.
