Family prepares for another Christmas without loved one 4 years after unsolved murder


A North Charleston family is preparing to go through another holiday season without one of their loved ones, whose murder case has gone cold.

The victim, 21-year-old Isaac Washington-Dais was killed on Dec. 4, 2010. Police say he was shot dead in a car on O'Hear Avenue.

The victim's brother thought by now, the killer would be behind bars.

"Torture, just to know that his killer or killers are still out here and nobody coming forward to actually give a clue,” George Dais said.

Isaac was killed nine days before his 22nd birthday.

"His birthday is on the 13th. That's a whole another year he's not here,” George said.

Investigators say the car in which Dais was in park, with the engine still running and music playing on the radio.

The family has no idea who wanted Dais dead.

"We kind of got an idea of where he was last and that was it,” George said.

He has his own theory why the case is still unsolved.

"Fear, the biggest thing is fear. It's about time for everybody to start taking a stand and stop being scared of people out here because this violence is plaguing our community."

George says the family has faith in the police department and the detectives who are working Isaac's murder.

"I know my mom and my family, we refuse to let his death go in van and let it go as a cold case."

Anyone with information on Isaac Dais' murder should call Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111.
