Sister's documentary details cold case of sailor found dead

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The documentary "Confidential: Do Not Duplicate" is an eerie first hand account of a family's attempt to cope with the murder of a loved one without having any information on how or why that person was killed.

The 1987 murder of 24-year-old Sailor Beth Ann Cameron is the focus of a 1991 documentary made and narrated by her sister Donna Cameron.

"I remember the day that I found out that my sister was dead my mother called she said ‘I have bad news Donna, Beth is dead,' " Donna Cameron said.

In the documentary, Cameron recalls the time between when her sister went missing and when her body was discovered.

"It was Christmas people were trying to contact her then they found the body, non of us have been the same since, you never forget every where you go every image, reminds you of the person that was suddenly taken away from you," Cameron said.

Beth Ann Cameron was stationed aboard the USS Holland. Her body was found New Year's Day 1988 in what was then a wooded area in North Charleston.

"I think about it all the time," Donna Cameron said. "The fact that somebody knows something and is not communicating that something to our family is very difficult to live with."

The North Charleston Police Department and NCIS are now working a new lead and re-testing DNA evidence to try and solve the Cameron murder case.

"I think the cruelest that anyone's said to me about this even was, well what you don't know can't hurt you that's not true people need to know. We all need to know," Donna Cameron said.   

New information has led investigators to believe that Beth Ann Cameron had connections to an escort service once called Sugar and Spice.
