I found this article about the disappearance of Tremaine Peek, an eighteen-year-old who’s been missing from Cocoa, Florida for three years last month. I’m kind of surprised no arrests have been made in this case. It’s obvious the young man was murdered and the police even have witnesses — albeit ear-witnesses, not eye-witnesses. A neighbor heard a gunshot and saw Tremaine being carried out of the apartment. Tremaine’s girlfriend was talking to him on the phone and she also heard a gunshot. She went to his apartment and his roommates said they’d taken him to the hospital, which turned out to be untrue. No prizes for guessing what actually happened.
Perhaps the police are just biding their time to put a strong case together. One of the suspects in Tremaine’s disappearance is in jail right now for another violent crime.
