Children, police want answers in mother's cold case murder

SUMTER, SC (WIS) - A Sumter family wants to know who shot their mother and left her body in the street. Now police need your help finding her killer.

Police say Pamela Gregg was murdered seven years ago in Sumter, and her killer is still out there. "I want closure for the parents, for the family and for myself," said Eugene Williams, the detective working the case.
Pam's murder affects this officer personally. "I knew Pam for a number of years myself, and for the way it was done," said Williams. "I'm feeling I gotta stick with it."

Williams says early that morning around 5:00am, Pam hitched a ride from someone outside a club off Shannon Avenue. About 30 minutes later, investigators say she was found just a block away.

Authorities say a neighbor found Pamela Gregg's body lying in the middle of Northwest Avenue. Investigators say when they found her, she had two gunshots to her head.

Years later with no suspect, Pam's death leaves a lot of questions for her grown-up children. "Even today when I'm walking the street and I see one of those kids, the first question they ask me is 'what's happening with my mom's case,'" said Williams.

Williams is urging people to speak up and help solve Pam's murder. "Anything at all that you might have seen or anything at all you heard people talking about, if you could just give us a call," he said.

If you know anything, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
