    It's been more than a decade, but a Dillon family is not giving up hope that one of their own will come home safely.

    Shakeima Cabbagestalk has been missing since the summer 1993.

    NewsChannel 15's Lindsay Tyner spoke with an aunt Sunday about the girl's mysterious disappearance.

    "When I think about it so long, tears begin to want to bubble up," said Maggie Cabbagestalk.

    Shakeima has been gone for 15 years now, but the time hasn't eased the pain or the questions.

    " A fear, you know, wondering what or wondering how it would happen," said Cabbagestalk

    Trial begins in 15 year old murder case.
    Trial begins in 15-year-old murder case


    By Tonya Brown

    Prosecutors say a Dillon County man killed his 10-year-old stepdaughter 15 years ago because she accused him of inappropriately touching her.


    They say after he killed her, he got rid of her body, and she has never been found.


    The prosecution believes they have a very strong case even without a body. They say the suspect, Sam Harmon, was the last person to see 10-year-old Shakeima Cabbagestalk alive in July of 1993. They say two weeks before she went missing Harmon talked about how he could dispose of a body.

    Police arrested him for the child's murder in 2005. At the time, they initially charged him with murder, kidnapping, and criminal sexual conduct, but the criminal sexual conduct charge has been dropped.


    Harmon's attorneys told jurors he had nothing to do with Shakeima's disappearance and say he has waited 15 years to prove his innocence. His lawyers went on to tell jurors they have confidence they will make the right decision.

    "You are Sam Harmon's jury. You are the ones who will decide his fate. We have chosen you. You have been sworn in," said Attorney Robert Lee.

    In 1992, a year before Shakeima went missing, the Department of Social Services investigated claims by the child that Harmon inappropriately touched her. That investigation found no wrong doing on Harmon's part, and he was never charged.


    However, prosecutors say they still believe the accusations is what led to the Shakeima's killing.

    The prosecution told jurors if Shakeima was still alive, she would have made contact with her grandmother and brother whom she loved so dearly.


    More than 30 people are expected to testify in Harmon's trial, and it could last all week.

    Man acquitted of stepchild's death
    Saturday, October 11, 2008



    DILLON — A jury has found a Dillon County man not guilty of killing his 10-year-old stepdaughter 15 years ago but convicted him of kidnapping her.

    Judge Michael Nettles sentenced 43-year-old Sam Harmon on Thursday to 12 years in prison but gave him credit for the three years he's been in jail. He is eligible for parole in a year.

    Harmon faced murder and kidnapping charges in the disappearance of his stepdaughter, Shakeima Cabbagestalk.

    The Morning News of Florence reported the girl was last seen with Harmon at a convenience store in July 1993. Prosecutors said she was murdered, even though her body was never found.

    Shakeima has been missing for 22 years. I read that investigators list her case as closed because they believe Harmon was responsible for her murder although he was found not guilty. He was found guilty of kidnapping but I think he was released. I tried looking him up on the inmate site for South Carolina and I couldn't find him. Even though the case is closed, I hope they are still looking for her. Some of her relatives believe she is still alive.
