MPD hoping to shed some light on 5 homicides still unsolved in 2013

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Montgomery Police are hoping recent homicide arrests can help draw some awareness to the few homicide cases still unsolved from this year so far.

Five homicide cases are still open at this point - the deaths of Cherokee Johnson, Melissa Ann Slater, Louis Robinson, Larry Wells and Tyvon Brown are still unsolved.

Cherokee Johnson, 39, was Montgomery's fourth homicide of 2013. His body was found in the roadway near the 2700 block of Foshee road back on Wednesday, January 9. Johnson died of a gunshot wound.

Police say Montgomery's fifth homicide victim of 2013 was killed after an altercation led to her shooting. Melissa Ann Slater was killed on January 11, she was found unresponsive near an apartment complex in the 3400 block of Audubon Road. Police believe her death was the result of an altercation, however, no arrests have been made in connection with her case.

Louis Robinson was found shot to death on Caffey Drive on February 17. The circumstances surrounding the 41-year-old's death are still unknown. Robinson's death was listed as the city's 10th homicide of 2013.

Larry Wells was fatally shot in the 1100 block of E.D. Nixon Ave. on March 15. No motive was ever released in connection with Wells' death. The 23-year-old's body was found inside a home. His death was listed as Montgomery's 16th homicide of 2013.

Tyvon Brown, 30, was shot in the 1000 block of Eastern Boulevard on April 5, 2013. He succumbed to his injuries on April 12 at Baptist South Medical Center. MPD's initial investigation indicated Brown's shooting was motivated by a robbery attempt involving drugs. No arrests were made in connection with Brown's death. Brown was listed as Montgomery's 19th homicide of 2013.

Police implore anybody with information in connection with any of these crimes, or others within the City of Montgomery to call MPD at 625-2831, the Secret Witness line at 262-4000 or Central Alabama CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP.
