Man vows to find brother's killer

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - By Harve Jacobs  bio | email | Twitter

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The brother of a man shot dead in North Charleston last month is making a public appeal for someone to come forward with information that may lead to an arrest.

Isaac Dais was gunned down in a car on O'Hear Avenue on December 4, just a few days before his 22nd birthday.

"I'm not gonna let my brother just go down as a cold case," said Dais' brother George. "To this day it still affects me because that was my only brother. He was a good kid, but he also was on the opposite side of the tracks."

George says he talked to his brother that afternoon and then tried to call him later.

"When I was trying to call him, his phone started going straight to his voice mail and that wasn't like him and that's when my mom started panicking," he recalled. "Next thing you know we were over at MUSC and he was dead."

So far the investigation into Isaac's murder has hit a dead end.

George  Dais believes people who know what happened are keeping their mouths shut on purpose.

"Everybody in the street believes in what they call a street code and I understand that. But until it happens to you, your family, directly someone close to you, all that goes out the window," he said.

Dais says he will continue to keep his brother's unsolved murder in the public eye. "I'm gonna fight this until whoever's responsible for this is brought to justice, not gonna let it rest just like that."

According to his brother, Isaac Dais was last seen in a white Nissan Altima the day he was killed.

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.
