    Cold Case: Murder of Georgia Man in Pitt Co. Still Unsolved
    Investigators need help from public to find killer.

    On August 6, 2003 some contractors clearing land along Highway 102 near Ayden, came across a disturbing find.

    A backhoe dug up human remains-- bones and remnants of clothes. Investigators got down in the dirt-- searching for even the smallest of clues.

    "You have to sit there and sort and try to determine what is key to your case and what just may be a piece of trash somebody has thrown in there," said Lt. Karen Kilpatrick, with the Pitt County Sheriff's Office.


    Investigators searched through missing persons records.


    "Once the remains were identified as Donald Brown's, investigators faced another challenge to find the killer. Brown was not from Pitt County. So detectives had to expand their investigation to Georgia, where brown's family still lives today.

    Sonji Brown of Stone Mountain, Georgia-- was used to being alone with her three children. Her husband Donald -- or "Danny"-- as she called him-- worked out of state.

    Brown was doing contract work for Cox Communications in Greenville, North Carolina.

    Mrs. Brown shared pictures with Non On Your Side's Kara Lusk. One picture was taken shortly after the birth of their son Dante. It was the first and only time Brown would see the son he always wanted.


    One of the last places Brown was seen alive-- the West Point Apartments in Greenville. He had been at a get-together with some co-workers the night of Saturday June 8, 2002. That was the last time Brown and her husband talked by phone.

    "He was happy that night I spoke with him," said Brown. "Then that Sunday I called and he didn't pick up the phone, and it just went right to voicemail. I really got concerned that Monday when I called and left him a message."


    If you have any information on the murder of Donald Brown, call Pitt-Greenville Crimestoppers at 252-758-7777. You don't have to give your name-- just your information. A $1,000 reward is being offered in this case.
