Search for killer continues one year later


Today marks one year since 22-year-old Corey Vann was found shot to death on River Road in New Hanover County. His body was found just after 12:30 a.m. on January 29, 2009.

On May 29 Vann's family and the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office announced a reward for information leading to an arrest. Detectives are still searching for information that could provide a lead.

I want everyone to know that

I want everyone to know that WPD SUCKS! It has been 3 years since this man was taken from us & there are still no leads...or have you guys just given up? I dont believe there have been ANY murder cases solved in wilmington NC in over 5 years unless the evidence is all in ur face and what not cuz the cops are too fat and lazy and too wrapped up in their own families to try to help ease the pain that someone has caused another family, well i have news for you WPD I hope NONE of you ever have to go through the pain and heartache caused by something as tragic as this. This has been a very painful and restless journey & yet we still have gotten nowhere! All of your training and "hard" work has sure paid off....yeah...Riiight.
