Cold-case investigation yields arrest in Isle of Wight homicide

Revisiting cold-case homicides led Isle of Wight County investigators to new information and an arrest in the death of a county native, Lt. Tommy Potter said.

This week, detectives arrested Trabion Tynes, 44, of Surry County and charged him with the 2004 slaying of his father, Johnnie Tynes Sr., 56. The victim’s youngest son — Trabion Tynes was 31 at the time — was indicted for murder and is being held without bond at Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Suffolk.

Trabion Tynes was charged in the murder once before, in February 2008. The charges were dropped in May 2008 after some witnesses were reinterviewed and several others could not be found.

The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office reviewed two cold-case homicides this year — Johnnie Tynes’ death and the slaying of Carrie Singer. Both deaths took place in 2004 and had remained unsolved, Potter said.

“Final chapter” of 1980 homicide victim’s story to be told on TV

Homicide victim Louisa Scott’s family members, who have fought to ensure that her killer remains incarcerated, say they participated in a television show about her case that will air Sunday on Investigation Discovery because they look at it as Scott’s “final chapter.”

“On the Case” with Paula Zahn will air at 10 p.m., and Scott’s sister, Beverly Canfield, said she would be watching at home in Lebanon, Conn., with her husband and friends.

The family wants people to know who Louisa Scott was and to warn would-be victims of serial rapist Edward F. Boyle Jr., who fatally strangled the 20-year-old on May 31, 1980, in Coventry.

Boyle, now 56, is incarcerated at the Brooklyn Correctional Center. Scott’s family is hoping he remains incarcerated at least until his parole expires in November 2024. The parole board has notified the family that they will be reviewing his case annually, as required by law, but that there will be no more public

I AM HOMICIDE Show avoids ‘Worst case ever’ for Det. McFadden as Season 2 gets underway

I Am Homicide show 2

I Am Homicide is back with its second season, and the Investigation Discovery hit is earning strong reviews and ratings alike. However, keen-eyed fans of Detective Garry McFadden have noticed one particular omission among the just-announced descriptions of the second season’s expanded offerings: unlike early seasons of Homicide Hunter or the debut of Murder Chose Me, the case Detective McFadden calls his “worst ever” has yet to be depicted for the show.

Though he “still hates talking about the case,” Garry has opened up about it before. It was among the last he worked as a Charlotte homicide detective, and involved a 23-month-old boy named Elijah Burger. (Articles about the toddler’s murder spell his name both with one “l” and with two.) In November of 2008, Elijah’s father, Andre

‘The Keepers’ on Netflix digs deeper into the life of a homicide victim

Her body was discovered in a vacant lot, remote wooded area, dumpster or car trunk. She was nude or partially clothed. There were signs of sexual assault.

As any armchair detective or avid Investigation Discovery channel viewer can tell you, such grim scenarios are standard fare for true-crime television, fodder for an endless stream of whodunits flooding the market.

Yet despite the reality that nearly 80 percent of the nation’s homicide victims are men, according to recent FBI stats, on crime TV it’s predominantly women who end up on the wrong side of a gun, knife or blunt instrument.

The demise of single moms, teenage daughters and beloved grandmothers drives the majority of shows on the 24/7-crime ID channel. Likewise, high-profile killings of females provided the groundwork for ESPN’s “OJ: Made in
