      Crime Stoppers March 25: Mother of homicide victim begs for justice

      Robert McGlown
      ROBERT MCGLOWN'S DEATH STILL UNSOLVED:

      It's been almost two years since Robert McGlown lost his life. He died June 10, 2012, during a drive-by shooting, and police do not believe he was the intended target.

      McGlown would have turned 36 years old Saturday.

      "I have not stopped trusting and believing," said his mother, Hattie McGlown.

      Detectives said that evening, two vehicles pulled up with around four individuals inside. Then, someone starting shooting, and McGlown took the hit.

      "Closure and justice take pressure off a person," added McGlown.

      Both she and detectives are hoping someone comes forward in the case. If you have any information, you will remain anonymous.
