Mother pleads for help to solve son's year-old murder

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The mother of a North Charleston murder victim is speaking out, hoping her plea will lead to an arrest in the year old case.

Gloria Chapman is convinced someone can lead police to her son's killer. On May 28, 2009, Corey Chapman's body was found in a wooded area behind the Pepperhill Townhomes. Police say he died from a gunshot wound to the head.

"Corey was just a loving person, gave me some problems, but just like a typical mother," said Gloria Chapman." He was a loving child, always happy."

Police have no motive for Chapman's murder. His mom believes Corey was setup by the killer. "I think he was lured out of the house by someone that night, maybe a phone call, and someone lured him out of the house that night," said Gloria Chapman.

One year later the grieving mother's got one question she wants answered: "Why would someone do this to him? That's the toughest part, why?"

Corey's sister says the murder has left its mark on the entire family. "It affects me, it affects my kids," said Adrienne Wynn."I miss seeing him around the house. I miss having special times with him."

Gloria Chapman hopes her appeal will result in an arrest. "I just want whoever did this to my son, they need to be locked up," she said. "They're probably out there running around, walking around having fun. I just want this case to be solved."

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You don't have to give your name and may earn a cash reward.
