On the morning of July 16, 1997, Marty woke up and started his morning routine like a normal Wednesday. He let the dog out & poured himself some breakfast. Sometime before 10:00 that morning his neighbor witnessed a man walk in to Marty’s front door without knocking, and a few minutes later leaving in a hurry. Concerned, his neighbor went to check on him. 


Marty was dead on his living room floor. The scene showed of a brutal murder. He had been shot multiple times. 

For more case and scene details, listen to the Creeps & Crimes episode 93.


25 years later, Marty’s murder remains unsolved. There has been very little movement on his case in years.
