    My uncle, John Erskin, was murdered two years ago in his own home. He was an elderly man. He was beaten to death, robbed and sexually assulted. He had cameras places in and around his home. Witnesses and confession statements have been made and turned over to the police and not a single arrest has been made. I have information i can release and send over to anyone that may be of help to my family. We need answers, we need a voice, we need justice. Please email me at Haleybullard94@yahoo.com for any further questions or assistance. You can google John Erskin of riverdale for further information as well. Justice For John is a facebook page encouraged for information, tips and any help in the case.

    Is this your grandfather in this news story? He looks like he was a great man. So sorry to hear of his terrible death and that the crime is still unsolved.

    Erskin murder case still open two years later

    I’m so very sorry about your grandfather. Unfortunately, even legal grows can attract dangerous people. Depending on how a confession is obtained, it may not be possible for police to act on it.* Have you tried meeting with police (perhaps with an attorney present) to find out what the problem is with the case? That could help you see what’s needed in order to proceed. All the best to you.

    *The Netflix series “Murder Mountain” illustrates this point.

    Welcome to Ws HaleyErskin!
    Someone must have known exactly where the cameras were and also known that they would be recognized if spotted on the cctv.
    Very strange that there was also a sexual assault as stated by posted by Haley Erskin. imo, speculation.

    “He had surveillance cameras and alarms on that area, the surveillance cameras were all destroyed, the video equipment was all taken, the alarms were destroyed,” Wright said.

    Wright believes more than one person was involved in the crimes."

    I agree that this is very strange. Is this where they got the perp's DNA? Do you know if it is only one person's DNA?
