Authorities in Atlanta are trying to identify the man who killed 14-year old Nicole Smith in 1995. AMW aired the case twice in 2006.
On Jun 7, 1995, 14-year old Nicole Smith was walking to her school when she realized that she had forgotten her book report. Leaving her friends, she took a shortcut to her home, when she was attacked by a black male who proceeded to viciously rape her and shoot her to death. Security guards found her body when they heard the gunshots at 9:20 AM. Her killer then disappeared.
Several years later, on Jun 20, 2004, a 13-year old girl was preparing to celebrate Father's Day in East Point, Georgia. The girl was lured by a man and was raped at knifepoint. Her attacker fled and her family didn't celebrate Father's Day. DNA evidence linked the same man to the 1995 murder of Nicole Smith and the 2004 rape. At the time of the 2004 rape, the perpetrator was believed to be in his late-20s.
Thoughts? I'm quite disappointed that AMW only aired this case twice in 2006 and forgot about it, when I feel this case is completely solvable. As Scumhunter mentioned in the Alexis Flores thread, I have to wonder had Nicole Smith been white if this case would get alot more attention. I feel her killer probably still lives in the Atlanta area and probably committed both known offenses in June for whatever reason.
