ON JUNE22ND,2016 DAVID FANN LEFT HIS HOME IN AMIGO WEST VIRGINIA AROUND 9AM TO RUN SOME ERRANDS IN BECKLEY WEST VIRGINIA.

AROUND 4PM A PAIR OF JOGGERS FOUND DAVID'S BODY ON A TRAIL.

HE HAD BEEN STABBED TO DEATH MULTIPLE TIMES... NEARLY 7 YEARS AND DAVID'S FAMILY AND LAW ENFORCEMNT ARE STILL SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS.


BORN ON NOVEMBER 1ST, 1940, IN COVEL, WEST VIRGINIA, DAVID WAS THE SON OF THE LATE STOKLEY ESTEL FANN AND BEULAH BLANCE HYLTON-FANN-BOLTON.

DAVID 74 WAS A VETERAN OF THE US AIR FORCE. A GRADUATE OF BLUEFIELD STATE COLLEGE WITH A BACHELOR'S IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. DAVID WAS AN ENTREPRENEUR FROM RENTAL PROPERTY TO RESTURANTS.

IN THE 1980'S DAVID OWNED A MOBILE DINER, THAT OFFERED EVERYTHING FROM ARCADE GAMES TO FOOD. IN 2016 HE RETIRED BUT STILL HAD A FEW RENTALS.


ON JUNE 22,2016 DAVID'S DAY SEEMED TO HAVE STARTED AS A NORMAL DAY. HE LEFT HIS HOME IN AMINGO, WV AROUND 9AM AND HEADED TO BECKLEY, WV TO PURCHASE A HEDGE TRIMMER AT HARBOR FREGHT.

WHEN DAVID ARRIVED IN BECKLEY, HE STOPPED AT TUDOR'S BUSICIT WORLD FOR BREAKFAST ON HARPER ROAD. AFTER HE LEFT TUDOR'S, HE DROVE TO HARBOR FREIGHT AND IS SAID TO PURCHASED A HEDGE TRIMMER, THEN HE DROVE TO OLLIE'S BARGAIN OUTLET.

DAVID WAS CAUGHT ON SERCURITY FOOTAGED LEAVING OLLIE'S. FROM REPORTS EVERYHTING SEEMED TO BE NORMAL...

IT'S BELEIVED THAT DAVID FINISHED HIS ERRANDS AROUND 12:30PM. AFTER THAT WE AREN'T SURE WHAT HAPPENED.


3 1/2 HOURS LATER AT LAKE STEVENS IN SURVEYOR, WV. TWO JOGGERS ON A TRAIL CAME ACROSS A PERSON LAYING DOWN. AT FIRST THEY BELIVED THE PERSON TO BE DRUNK OR PASSED OUT ON DRUGS SO THEY CALLED THE PARLS MAINTENANCE. WHEN MAINTENANCE ARRIVED, THEY REALIZED THAT IT WAS THE LIFELESS BODY OF DAVID FANN, RIGHT THEN AND THERE THEY CALLED 911 DEPUTOES WITH THE RALEIGH COUNTY SHERRIF'S DEPT WERE DISPATCHED TO THE SCENE.


FOR NEARLY 7 YEARS DAVID'S FAMILY HAD GRIEVED THE LOSS OF A LIFE TAKEN FAR TOO SOON. THAT PAIN IS ONLY AMPLIFIED BY THE LACK OF ANSWERS SURROUNDING HIS MURDER. SOMEONE OUT THERE KNOWS SOMETHING THAT COULD HELP DETECTIVES SOLVE THIS CASE AND GIVE DAVID THE JUSTICE HE DESERVES.
