Danville Police Hope Halloween Masks Will Help Catch Homicide Suspects
Danville, VA – Danville Police are looking for help in solving a murder outside a gas station last month.
They held a press conference Thursday morning about the murder of Gilmore Martin Cowan on September 30. He was stabbed to death outside the PURE Gas Station on South Boston Road. Police say two men were wearing full face Halloween masks when they went up to Cowan in the parking lot and stabbed him. They say the masks were found during a search of the area shortly after the crime took place.
Police believe one of the men was cut during the assault. They are asking the public to contact them if they know of anyone who has a recent cut or laceration, or who has purchased or acquired items to treat a cut. Also, if you are familiar with either mask in the picture, call Danville Crimestoppers at 434-793-0000. Your tip could earn a reward.
