WILMINGTON — On March 31, 2007, Ronald Conyers Jr. was found shot to death in an alley near 16th and Nun Streets. Samantha Buchanon, his mother, is still trying to cope with the loss of her son. "I’ve never felt this kind of pain where the pain never goes away". One year has passed and she’s still hoping investigators will find his killer. "I can hear him in my mind saying ma’ we gotta keep going, we gotta keep going". Police discoverd Conyers’s body just a few blocks from where he lived. Police are still seaching for clues. Detective D.T. Moore believes that neighbors are key to cracking the case. He said, "I believe they saw something, whether they saw the shooting, whether they saw someone carrying the body to where it was found, it was out in the open it was in the daytime, somebody had to see something." Moore says his team is confident they will find Conyers’s killer. They are looking for at least three people who may know something. In the meantime, Conyers’s mother urges anyone who knows something to come forward. After a year of waiting she’s ready to know the answer to the question that still agonizes her today. "I just want to know who," she said. "I don’t think the why would matter at this point…" Police are urging anyone with information to come forward. You can call the Wilmington Police Department’s anonymous tip line at 763-3888.

Anybody want to bet that at least one of the five thugs arrested in the murder of Robert Marshall Jr is involved in this case?

NO BOND IS ANY CLOSER
THAN THAT OF A SON TO A MOTHER
FOR MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY IS WITH
YOU ALL AT THIS TIME.

THIS IS WITH CARING THOUGHTS
AND PRAYERS FROM ME TO
YOUR ENTIRE FAMILIES.

YOUR SORROW MAY REMAIN,
BUT THE LOVE HE LEFT
INSIDE YOUR HEART
WILL TAKE AWAY THE PAIN.

I WILL NOT FOLLOW WHERE
THE PATH MAY LEAD,
BUT I WILL GO WHERE
THERE IS NO PATH,
AND I WILL LEAVE A TRAIL.

I have not lost a son
but my identical twin
sister lost her daughter
to murder 19 months ago
in Bolivia, NC and she
was my niece. I wish I
could tell you at this
moment it gets better
in time but I can’t.
Sheriff Hewett found
the killer quickly
and she is in prison.
I want you to know that
I have prayed for you
all but now I will more
for the killer to be
caught and brought to
justice very very soon.
My heart is burdened for
your loss at this time.
GOD BLESS YOU!
