Escambia Co. Sheriff’s Office Covers Four Cold Cases at Symposium

Escambia County, Florida (WKRGMore) — The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is investigating four different cold case murders in Escambia County as part of a two-day cold case symposium.

The symposium is made up of community retirees and volunteer law enforcement detectives.

“We consider a case unsolved when all available leads have been exhausted and no probable cause of arrest can be established. We haven’t forgotten,” the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

The following victim cases will be investigated:

Connie Slaughter: December 10, 2010A carnage was discovered near her car at her residence. She was found with blood on her hands and her face. Her keys and mobile phone were missing from the scene.

Stephen Davis: August 26, 1998Davis was shot in a taxi after exiting the Winn Dixie parking lot at 400 Navy Blvd.

Anna-Louise Brown: April 30, 2017Brown was found dead on the side of the road near Gibson Street. Alligator Creek after being shot multiple times. The family expressed concern because Brown’s ex-husband was verbally and physically abusive.

Kenneth ‘Kenny’ Underwood: January 3, 1980. Nine-year-old Kenneth Underwood was last seen playing (hunting) near an abandoned church near Callaway and Booker Streets in the Cantonment on January 2, 1980. He was found with his 20-foot pine tree segment on the top of his body. His belt and his BB gun were found in two different locations on him about 50 feet from his body.

The symposium will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

“We want to leverage the years of experience that seasoned law enforcement professionals bring,” said Sheriff Chip Simmons. It is my hope that the combination of case investigators and experienced retirees volunteers will be able to close these cases and put an end to their families.”
