From Project: Cold Case Spotlight:
On March 26, 1997, Curtis Williamson, 16, and his cousin were chased into Mission Bay after a fight broke out in the Crown Point Shores parking lot in San Diego, California. After swimming safely to an anchored buoy several yards offshore, the individuals that chased them entered the water and began swimming after them. Investigators believe that Curtis drowned while attempting to escape those chasing him. Curtis’ cousin was saved by a rescue boat after police arrived on the scene. Despite numerous witnesses, no arrests have ever been made.
Curtis’ mother has launched a campaign to help families get answers after this type of tragic loss. Visit her Justice4Curtis page to read about her journey and sign a petition she has started in hopes of changing laws regarding minor (under age 18) victims of homicide.

Thoughts? I understand different states have different technicalities but the fact cannot be denied- if the group of individuals did not chase Curtis and his cousin into the water- Curtis would still be alive today. That is why this case is considered a murder.
Sadly, as of this posting date (September 23rd, 2019), Curtis's case is still listed as unsolved on the Project: Cold Case website database: database.projectcoldcase.org/?name=Williamson&gender=male&race=&age=&city=&state=California&zip=&county=&weapon=&offense=&status=&year=1997&reported_min=&reported_max=&more=true
