‘Who Killed Me?’ New billboard campaign to solve murders

September 18, 2012 at 11:30 am | In Crime, West Seattle news, West Seattle police | 7 Comments

Tomorrow marks exactly 31 years since Greggette R. and Dwight K. Guy were wed at a church in Burien. Today – six months and one week after Mrs. Guy was murdered in West Seattle – her husband (above) came from Kent to stand in a South Seattle parking lot with other murder victims’ families, showing support for a new billboard/bus-board campaign. CrimeStoppers and Seattle Police are among the sponsors of “Who Killed Me?”, which will place billboards around the city, showing murder victims’ faces, and imploring people with any information to come forward. Dwight Guy did not speak at today’s media event, but several of those on hand did, often emotionally. (Added – here’s our video of the entire event:)

Mr. Guy’s message, in a conversation with WSB afterward, is the same: Even if it takes years, his wife’s killer can be found and brought to justice. Organizers tell us a billboard will be put up in West Seattle with Mrs. Guy’s photo; they’re checking on the planned location (update – it’ll be on Harbor Avenue near the bridge). The first billboard, unveiled during the media event, highlights three other unsolved killings.

For more on where the Greggette Guy case stands, here’s our detailed followup from last week. P.S. There is one more West Seattle case on SPD’s list of spotlighted unsolved murders in the past 2 years – that of Kaari Higgins, a Fauntlee Hills woman whose January 2011 death was not classified as a homicide till long afterward. Find out more about Ms. Higgins, Mrs. Guy, and the other unsolved-murder victims here.

  1. Mrs. Guy’s case is so shocking, so heartbreaking, I find it hard to process and I’m just a random West Seattleite. I really hope this billboard will help; we in West Seattle want justice (and peace) for her and her family.

  2. The heartbreak experienced by the family members must be unbearable. I am stunned by the number of unsolved murders since 2010.

  4. RIP … we haven’t … but SPD has not classified his death as a homicide, to our knowledge, so he is not in the “unsolved murders” files. (We’ll check yet again; we have been watching various online files related to that search warrant revealed a while back. I hope friends and family are continuing to follow up with police as well.) – TR

  5. One of my best friends disappeared long ago and her case remains an unsolved murder mystery as well…..her remains were found but her death is still unsolved sadly.

    The case of Sandi Johnson is equally mysterious.
    Although police say there is a person of interest in the case, extensive interviewing of numerous people associated with Johnson and her life has not turned up any clues, county sheriff’s Detective Scott Strathy said.

    Investigators were called in after Johnson, 28, failed to pick up her children at a baby-sitter’s home the evening of April 26, 1996. Police know that she left her home north of Kirkland to run errands and meet a friend for lunch at Bellevue Square. She never made it to lunch, nor to her son’s birthday party the next day.

    Two days later, her wallet was found in the parking lot at the Eagle Hardware & Garden store in Seattle’s Rainier Valley. And two days after that, her station wagon was found at a Thriftway supermarket near Burien.

  6. Good to see Nicole Westbrook included in this series. The Westbrooks are such an outstandingly fine family, have sacrificed two sons (in Iraq and Afghanistan), and are held in great respect in this section of the country. Our hearts are aching that no one has come forward with information about Nicole’s murder. ClearChannel, Titan Outdoor, SPD and DOJ are all to be commended for their support of this effort.

  7. My brother, Brandon Clements, was shot and killed in June 2006 at the young age of 24 in Seattle. His body found the next day in an alley. Although he didn’t live the cleanest of lifestyles, he did not deserve to have his life taken by another. He had family and friends who cared about him. His murder is still unsolved and a murderer is still out on the streets. Hopefully these billboards will help bring attention to his and others’ cases and remind us not to forget.
